Indeed. Sadly PR-EIF doesn't appear on the Brazilian CAA website, so no confirmation there (assuming test or temporary registration).

According the usually nicely updated FAA website cn19000461 is still assigned as N176HQ.

Seems the E170s will finally be ready to be used, any ideas what other routes?
Interesting that Airlink will compete on a route like JNB-PLZ...

On a different note though, it looks like Airlink might be suspending PLZ-ELS from end of June...withdrawal of J41s causing this...maybe a good route for another operator with B1900Ds...

Would PLZ-ELS be a good route for Express to operate their EMB-120? Or Cemair with their Dash 8-300?
Positive rate! :D

Not sure if they're withdrawing the J-41s all, perhaps still one by one over a period...the question still remains what will they do on the Phalaborwa route then. Perhaps it's just a glitch in the system, as it shows PLZ-ELS available again from 17 Oct.
I guess it's not costing them much to have the J-41s operating such limited schedules, can afford to stand idle during the day, the one in DUR looks to be the least active, basically just one return flight per day, while the PLZ one does double-daily weekday . Out of JNB they it seems to be doing PHW, one SIS and Tommy'sField mostly.

No rather keep Express of this. Was thinking CemAir yes with B1900s, two or even 3 times daily...with a B1900 there 5Z should be able to do PLZ to ELS, BFN and GRJ.
Airlink are replacing the early morning PLZ-JNB SAA flight.
I'm not seeing what SAA flight is currently still operating with night-stop at PLZ, perhaps it was withdrawn in the January cuts, but then Mango took up the capacity, not necessarily the times.

See JNB-TNR also now scheduled for E170
