In service with the launch customer Dan‐Air since May, 1983, the British Aerospace 146 has shown its ability to serve airports hitherto not available to passenger jet airliners and has also undertaken, on a day‐to‐day basis, rapid turnround and transit stops requiring only the minimum of ground support facilities. A typical sector operated by Dan‐Air with this aircraft is to Bern, the Swiss capital, with a journey time of about 1 hour 30 minutes. The runway at this airport is only 1,300 metres in length, so that operation has to be with equipment of suitable performance. As well as this destination, the 146 also operates on the airline's scheduled service network from Gatwick to Dublin and Toulouse and to Newcastle, Bergen and Stavanger.
