At the first day of the ALTA Airline Leaders Forum in Panama City, the largest event of its nature for the Latin American and Caribbean commercial Aviation industry, Air Panama has signed a contract with Fokker Services for the landing gear overhauls of their Fokker 50 fleet.

In May 2012 Fokker Services announced the extension of the Fokker 50 Landing Gear Life from 60.000 to 72.000 flight cycles.

Air Panama currently operates 3 modern types of Fokker aircraft for various routes, as they are replacing their older Fokker 27 aircraft. Between August and September 2010, Air Panama received two Fokker 70s, their first jet aircraft. In September 2011 the company acquired two Fokker 50 aircraft from Scandinavian Airlines and earlier in 2012, two Fokker 100 aircraft where added to the fleet. To adapt to the current demand in seat capacity Air Panama is planning to exchange their Fokker 70 aircraft with more Fokker 100 aircraft.

We are very pleased with the various Fokker Aircraft we operate and the quality of the competitive support services provided by Fokker Services, says Eduardo Stagg, General Manager of Air Panama, the reason we asked Fokker Services to perform the landing gear overhauls for our Fokker 50 aircraft”.

We are excited we signed this contract with our loyal and well respected customer Air Panama and we are convinced that the Fokker 50’s will continue contributing to the  success of  Air Panama’s operations” says Leon Kouters, VP Marketing & Sales Fokker Services Inc.
