The fashions of rural Queensland in 1965. The Ansett group embraced the Piaggio P166 and they served with all the group's airlines. Ultimately running third-level air services with first-level airline costs saw Ansett withdraw from smaller towns in favour of commuter airlines started by air charter operators. The Fokker F27 became the smallest aircraft operated by Ansett.

Airlines of NSW started operations with VH-PQA in the Riverina region of New South Wales in January 1967 but within the year the aircraft was parked in the Essendon graveyard. The experience hastened the licensing of third-level (commuter) airlines in Australia to take over regional DC-3 services that were not viable with Fokker F27s. Third-level airlines typically paid general aviation wages, which was not an option for Ansett-owned Airlines of NSW. -PQA would return to scheduled services in 1968 with one of the new third-level operators, the aptly named Commuter Airlines, based at Essendon.
