Fokker Services launched a range of new support packages under the FLYFokker brand for current and potential operators of Fokker 50s and 100s at the Dubai Airshow.
The FLYFokker package comprises four separate solutions. The Take Off solution is aimed at startup operators, and helps reduce time to operations from six months to six weeks, including an option to use ACMI aircraft operated by Denim Air. The Take Care package is for mature Fokker operators and aims to increase dispatch reliability and reduce direct operating costs. The Take Over package is for operators moving on to other aircraft, while Take Next is focused on preparing aircraft for the next operator.
Fokker Services says that there are over 700 Fokker aircraft still in service around the world which are still economically viable. Locally, Alliance Airlines, Skywest and Network Aviation operate fleets of Fokker 50 turboprops and Fokker 100 jets, primarily on mining charter services.
