Croatia Airlines Fleet Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 Details and Pictures. On current fleet, Croatia Airlines operates 6 turboprop aircraft Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 (Bombardier DHC-8-400) for short-haul flights.
The Bombardier Q Series – originally called DHC-8 Dash 8 – is a series of turboprop-powered commercial airliners, introduced by the Canadian company de Havilland Canada.
Dash 8 was developed in the early 1980s as a modern and efficient short-haul aircraft intended to replace the 60s and 70s models on an increasing number of regional routes.
The original series 100 could carry up to 38 passengers and could fly at a high cruising speed considering its power.
Series 100 was followed by the more powerful series 200 and the bigger series 300 (that could carry up to 56 passengers), after which the company was acquired by Bombardier Aerospace, which soon recognised the need for a even bigger and faster aircraft that could compete with regional jets.
The new series 400 that completed its maiden flight on 31 January 1998 had a longer fuselage and could carry up to 78 passengers, had twice as powerful engines and could cruise at an amazing speed of 650 km/h (nearly the half of speed of sound).
On top of these improvements, series 400 had the letter Q (for ‘quiet’) added to its name to emphasise the reduced cabin noise and vibration.
To date, around 1250 Dash 8 aircrafts have been manufactured, out of which 580 were Q400.
