Skytrans (Q6, Cairns) is to open a second base in Brisbane Int'l after it secured a new three year transport contract worth AUD25 million (USD17.84 million) with natural gas producer QGC Pty Limited.

Effective October 26, the carrier will provide nine weekly return flights for QGC staff and contractors from Brisbane to sites in Chinchilla (located roughly 300km west-northwest of Brisbane) and Taroom (located 380km north west of Brisbane). Skytrans will also expand their flight operations from their headquarters in Cairns which services the Cape York and Torres Strait. 

Operations are on-board a pair of Dash 8-100s the carrier acquired earlier this year.

Collings Aircraft Holdings, the owners of West Wing Aviation (WW, Mount Isa), acquired the bankrupt carrier from previous owner Simon Wild in March this year. Operations subsequently resumed on April 1.
