We are delighted that we can use the well established distribution channels of Fokker Services to make our surplus Dash 8 100/200/300* inventory available worldwide.”

It underlines the quality reputation and the commitment of our company in the continued competitive support of the Dash 8 turboprop.’’
This agreement is another important step in Fokker Services’ efforts to leverage its unique integrated service capabilities to provide continued support to the Dash 8 100/200/300* turboprop market globally.
In 2011 Fokker Services also entered into a Strategic Alliance with Bombardier to launch FLY for Dash 8, a program aimed at improving the availability of components and reducing the cost of repairs for Dash 8 100/200/300* aircraft operators. The program also helps operators to better predict and budget for material maintenance.
