Fokker 70/100 economics

Mr. Reinhold Franz, Director Operations Procurement Austrian Airlines

"This Take Care Partnership with Fokker Services has mutually been developed over the past year and is crucial for the sustainable reliability and cost effectiveness of our Fokker operations. Part of the agreement is the implementation of new LED cabin lighting to even further increase the comfort of our valued customers, as our complete fleet has been equipped with the newest Fokker interior already. We expect to fly our Fokker Fleet for many years to come, as the Fokker 70 and Fokker 100 are very cost effective, competitive and reliable aircraft in operation".

Mr. Jaan Albrecht, Chief Executive Officer, Austrian Airlines AG

"The competitive operating costs of our Fokker 70 & 100 fleet are very much holding their own. At the same time their rejuvenated cabin interiors, which now include LED lighting, combined with low noise levels creating a pleasant passenger experience, enable and facilitate us to offer off-peak frequencies complementary to A320 aircraft series.

The aircraft has consistently demonstrated high reliability and performance on the short sectors" said Peter Foster, President of Air Astana." (source: www.airastana.com)

Mr. Scott McMillan, Managing Director Alliance Airlines

Alliance Airlines operates unique services throughout Australia in support of major resource companies and other diverse customers ranging from military through to tourism operators. Alliance commenced services in 2002 with two leased Fokker 100 aircraft and has grown its fleet to 11 Fokker 100 aircraft and five Fokker 50 aircraft.

"Fokker aircraft have a proud record in Australia, principally because they operate extremely well in the harsh climate that is unique to Australia. Alliance operates to many short and isolated airports with minimal ground support equipment and both the Fokker 50 and Fokker 100 aircraft are uniquely suited to that style of operation. Alliance fleet reliability for both the Fokker 50 and Fokker 100 are world leading and provide our customers with the confidence of the highest possible level of on time performance. Interestingly the dispatch reliability achieved by Alliance exceeds many new types currently in service in Australia."

Mr. Bruno Jans, CEO Helvetic Airways

With a dispatch reliability rate of over 99% the Fokker 100 has been Helvetic Airways’ loyal workhorse. ‘Our customers truly appreciate the Fokker 100 flying experience’.

Mr. Jeff Eager, Adagold Aviation General Manager

“The Fokker 70LR planes are arguably the best planes that have ever been used in an election campaign,” Eager said.
“We had 100 per cent on time performance, which is an amazing achievement given some flights were mobilised with less than one hour’s notice.”
The planes were fit with business class seats and Integral Air Stairs, which meant they could land anywhere and not impact flight schedules by taking over the airport’s ground service equipment. The planes were also small enough to land in remote airports which larger commercial jets often can’t access.
