The DEWR Australian Antarctic Division's personnel transport was built in 2003 and made its first flight on 10 July using the Airbus flight-test reg D-AVYQ. It was delivered to CIT Leasing to be operated by Air France on 22 January 2004. In 2007 it was acquired by the Australian Government for operation to the new blue ice runway at Casey Station. It was registered VH-VHD on 16 February and delivered two days later, to be operated by Skytraders.
