The BAe 146/Avro RJ was purpose-built for short and difficult runways (e.g. Vágar Airport in the Faroe Islands) which previously could only be served by turboprops. The four small turbofans are also very quiet, which makes it optimal for noise restricted city airports, e.g. London City Airport.

As a modern British airliner, the BAe 146 is operated by the RAF as a transport aircraft, including as VIP transport for the royal family.
