    re: qan announcement 717's within SYDNEY, 11 February 2005: Qantas said today that Adelaide-based National Jet
    Systems had been selected as the preferred bidder to operate and maintain QantasLink’s
    new Boeing 717 regional flying operations.
    The Chief Executive Officer of Qantas, Geoff Dixon, said QantasLink announced in
    October last year that it would progressively replace its fleet of BAe146 aircraft with newer
    Boeing 717 aircraft from July 2005.
    The Boeing 717 aircraft will move from Jetstar to QantasLink as Jetstar continues to grow
    its fleet of new Airbus A320s.
    Mr Dixon said the bidding process had been very competitive, with proposals submitted by
    National Jet Systems, which currently operates QantasLink’s BAe146 fleet, and Jetstar,
    which currently operates the Boeing 717 fleet.
    “In the end the strength of the relationship and the fact that a decision against National Jet
    Systems could have resulted in significant job losses in several States were the deciding
    factors,” Mr Dixon said.
    “National Jet Systems is a highly respected provider of aviation services to Australian
    corporate and government organisations.
    “They have provided aircraft, pilots and cabin crew to the Qantas Group for fourteen years
    and we look forward to continuing this excellent partnership.”
    Mr Dixon said confirmation of the selection of National Jet Systems was subject to
    satisfactory negotiation of the operating agreement.
    “The Boeing 717s will allow QantasLink to increase capacity on a range of routes in
    Western Australia, the Northern Territory and Queensland,” Mr Dixon said.
    Eight Boeing 717s, operating in a 115 seat configuration with a 32 inch seat pitch, will
    gradually replace eight 65 to 76 seat BAe146s in the QantasLink fleet over the 12 months
    beginning July 2005.
    QantasLink will continue to fly its remaining two BAe146 aircraft, which are leased until
    December 2006.
