Qantas to do maintenance in Canberra

Qantas Link has announced that it will create a Boeing 717 maintenance base in Canberra, generating up to 40 highly skilled engineering roles in the nation’s capital.
Qantas Link Chief Executive Officer John Gissing was joined by the ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr to make the announcement at Qantas Link’s Boeing 717 engineering facility.
“From October, Canberra will be at the heart of our Boeing 717 engineering operations, which will complement our increased flying out of Canberra with this aircraft type and allow us to better utilise our existing assets at Canberra Airport,” Mr Gissing said.
“This is an investment in new jobs and technical capabilities at Canberra Airport and builds on our strong commitment of over 260 Qantas Group employees in the ACT.”
QantasLink conducts maintenance on its Q400, Q300 and Q200 at its heavy maintenance facility in Tamworth.
