Longest Q400 Flight (as of 2017)

Mon Nov 13, 2017 1:14 pm

Stumbled across this data lately and it seems to be highly debatable:

http://info.flightmapper.net/flight/Aurora_Airlines_HZ_4610

HZ 4610 is a domestic flight from PKC - UUS operated by a Q400.
Total flight time is shown as 3 hours and 20 minutes, beating the previous record by 10 minutes! :lol:

Galileo GDS shows that flight as 820 miles. ET use the Q400 on some ADD-KGL services - shown as 964 miles.

I would say it's probably BE with SOU-AGP, that may be a summer flight only though

Eurowings have started using ex Air Berlin (still in livery) Q400's between DUS-GLA, not the longest route but a good example of a longish Q400 journey which billed as 1h 45mins, appears from observation of the last few days to be taking a full 2 hours. There's also the Q400 services from Iceland to Aberdeen and Belfast.

The Air Baltic flight Riga-Brussels is right at 2:30. With the CS300 it is 30min shorter.

Just for fun, how long would that be on an ATR-72? 3hrs? (If it has the leg)

Most certainly the longest over-water Q400 route : PDL - LPA, Ponta Delgada - Gran Canaria, 904miles, 1452 km, flew it twice this year on SATA, almost 3 hours, a bit eerie 3 hours in a Q400 with nothing but ocean below.

The longest flights I know about in ATR is MLN-LPA operated by Air Nostrum for IB. It is seasonal route with 890 mile distance to cover. I think it is close to 4 hours in duration.

For a similar effect, Flugfélag Íslands (for Icelandair) BHD-KEF - 873 miles, block time 2h55m.

Re: Longest Q400 Flight (as of 2017)

Mon Nov 13, 2017 3:30 pm

There are a number of "long haul" Q400 flights in Europe that push (or exceed) the 1,500 km/800 NM mark. Air Iceland flew Reykjavik-Kirkenes, a great circle distance of 2,275 km/1,230 NM... there's also the Keflavik-East Midlands run that's 1,725 km/930 NM. Further south, Austrian has Graz-Rhodes at 1,575 km/850 NM - while Luxair flies the Q400 over the 1,520 km/820 NM from Luxembourg to Catania. Air Baltic's longest Dash flight - if I'm not mistaken - is Riga-Brussels, 1,440 km/780 NM.

A typical high-speed cruise on the Q400 is 340 kts/630 km/h - but winds (especially in winter) play an important role in determining flight time. I'd once done a 1,100 km/595 NM run in just a tad over three hours with a stiff headwind... and one hour and 45 minutes on the way back.

I’d be curious what they’re using for alternates at PKC and UUS. All the ones I can think of are a long ways away

QX flew the Q400 on LAX-LAP. That's at least 750nm or over 800 statute miles. It was over two hours. It was on of the longer Q400 flights schedules.

Should be around 3:15 - 3:20, maybe as much as 3:30.

Not the longest though, cargo operators fly even further. My personal record on the ATR is about 4 hours for a scheduled flight, 6 hours on a non-scheduled. For passenger scheduled, I regularly do 3:30 flights.

I actually flew KGL-ADD on a DH4 in February. It was fine - you really did not nice you were on a prop (other than the slower flight time).

The Porter Airlines Toronto City-Melbourne,FL has a usual flight time of 3:10. That always seemed way too long IMO, teeth would be rattling after that flight haha

I'm not aware that QX has ever operated the Q400 from SNA-PDX. When was that?

QX has operated the Q400 on FAT-SEA, and SBA-SEA though.

Wow, and I can only image weather conditions can likely be far more challenging than those in the Canaries and Azores.

OAK is the farthest destination in CA QX flies PDX-originating Q400s. They used to fly SJC but that's been mainline/E175 for a few years now. OAK going mainline Dec 1. SEA-STS (618 mi) still all Q400 though.

For an ATR flight Air Tahiti seems to have everyone else mentioned in this thread beaten:
PPT-GMR [Gambier Is, East Tuamotu Islands]
4:45 hours scheduled flying time, twice weekly, 894 nm, 1028 sm, 1655 km.

Yakutia fly a weekly YKS-KJA service with the Q400 - 1,367 miles and blocked at 4h 20m. They have a bunch of routes over or around the 1,000 miles mark - they really stretch its legs.

As mentioned Air Baltic also operate some long sectors on the Q400 - several 3+ hour routes in the past.

QX did SEA-FAT with a Q for awhile on one of the two daily flights. I flew it once I understand they've also done SEA-SBA as an equipment substitution for a CR7.

I remember the 6am SJC-PDX flight was a Q400 in the not too distance past. Seems more recent than a few years.

Well look at that. So the new winter seasonal YOW-MLB on PD appears to be second longest.

Starting back on November 5th, QX shifted the PDX - SBA flight to a Q400. It's 783 miles, scheduled for 2:25. At one time, they flew them on MFR - LAX but that was a while back.

Yikes, Looks like it's all CRJ-200 now until March 11 when the Q400 improbably returns. I expect that schedule will change though as we get closer and another update rolls out.

Yes, was scheduled but then it switched to OO, assuming based on the QX issues.

Actually LAX-MFR was pretty recent. I actually thought they still flew it.

QX once did LAX-EUG on a Q400 and might still do LAX-SUN.

All long routes but not the winner.

PDX-SBA.

I believe LAX-MFR is still suspended for the time being

The longest flights I know about in ATR is MLN-LPA operated by Air Nostrum for IB. It is seasonal route with 890 mile distance to cover. I think it is close to 4 hours in duration.


Should be around 3:15 - 3:20, maybe as much as 3:30.

Not the longest though, cargo operators fly even further. My personal record on the ATR is about 4 hours for a scheduled flight, 6 hours on a non-scheduled. For passenger scheduled, I regularly do 3:30 flights.

For an ATR flight Air Tahiti seems to have everyone else mentioned in this thread beaten:
PPT-GMR [Gambier Is, East Tuamotu Islands]
4:45 hours scheduled flying time, twice weekly, 894 nm, 1028 sm, 1655 km.
ALL over open water!

Now thats a nasty flight. Almost 5 hours in an aircraft without a proper galley (no ovens, no coffee maker etc.), in a noisy turboprop :melting:

Better than an inter-island steamer once a month taking, at least a week, to reach PPT! :-)

In Norway, Widerøe has their longest flight Bergen-Tromsø at 665nm / 1250km, blocked at 2hrs25mins on the Q400. They have even used the -300 when loads are light. FR24 has shown flights close to 3 hours when the winds are nasty. It's a popular route and will be upgauged to the factory-fresh E190-E2 next year.
Come, fly the prevailing winds with me

I don't know if it's the longest but this summer I flew from Hoedspruit (HDS) to Cape Town with a South African express Q400: it was about a 1000 miles flight.

The longer the better for that flight. I did it 20 years ago in a jet. The wintery scenery below is stunning.
