Dutch planemaker Fokker placed 23 aircraft during the first half of 2012, including six to Australian airlines, the company has reported.
Australian FIFO carriers Network Aviation and Alliance ordered five Fokker 100 jetliners and one Fokker 50, respectively. Network, a Qantas subsidiary, operates a current fleet of seven Fokker 100s, while Alliance operates five Fokker 50s and 20 Fokker 70/100s.
Fokker said total aircraft placements, which included leases and sales, were down slightly from last year but attributed the drop to lower aircraft availability.
