Fokker Services and KL Cityhopper reached an agreement for component mx.
This new contract bypasses KL's own E&M and makes KL a user of Fokker's Abacus program.
At this moment it's about 53 frames in total but will be 55 when the 2 recent acquired frames are serviced at Fokker Services WOE.

The internal memo included another interesting fact, the new contract will run till 2017.
That should give Rekkof some time to come up with something nice  Wink

So, that's even more work for you, Willem!

Quoting Aviopic (Thread starter):
when the 2 recent acquired frames are serviced at Fokker Services WOE.

Are these the two former TAM Fokker 100's that will come off lease end 2006 / beginning 2007 reported by Airnieuws magazine as going to join the fleet of WA?
PT-MRS/11462 and PT-MRP/11472?

It's great to see KL committing to operating those airframes that long. I love the F70 and F100.

But from a Rekkof standpoint it's not so good, since it implies those 55 airframes won't be replaced for over 10 years. That puts even more pressure on any chance of reasonable economic return on a Rekkof product.

No info yet Adriaan.
You might think they have learned from their previous ex-TAM excursion which ended in tears.
On the other hand they have by sending them to WOE for service before trying to use them.

No, it implies that the last frame will be used for another 10 years.
We or at least I do not know when they start to replace the fleet but my best guess is in about 7 years as normally you need about 3 years to go from order a frame to be completely geared up.
