Skytrans is an Australian airline and air charter business with bases in Cairns, Brisbane, Toowoomba and Perth. The airline operates scheduled passenger services from Cairns and Brisbane to 25 locations through Queensland and New South Wales. They are a major operator of the Bombardier Dash 8 series of aircraft in Australia, seating 36-50 passengers.
Skytrans was formed in October 1990 as a charter airline, and began scheduled flights in 1993. In November 2000, Skytrans merged with AirSwift Aviation, another small regional airline based in Cairns. In June 2001, Skytrans took over services to Cooktown and Karumba from MacAir Airlines. In January 2005, the airline began to operate in competition with QantasLink on the Cairns — Townsville route, operating from its own terminals in both cities.
In December 2006, the airline was acquired from its founders by Australian Aviation Holdings, which also owns Queensland Regional Airlines and Inland Pacific Air. Skytrans and QRA have now merged under the Skytrans banner.
In July 2009 Skytrans changed its IATA designator from NP to Q6.
