Hi all,

Last year we finally got the confirmation that Rekkof was going to develop a Fokker 70/100 Next Generation. The ambition was (or is ) to achieve a 25% lower CASM than its main competitors (ERJ 190 I guess). Last autumn, the Dutch government secured an investment of - around - 25 million Euros for Rekkof for the development of this plane. Also a production plant in Brazil was secured.

We are now in August 2011 and so far we do not hear anything about 'First glight', production path, potential customers and any other news.

Has anyone got an update concerning the Fokker Next Generation? I have always liked T-tailed planes with engines at the rear of the cabin so I really hope that we are able to step on board of the new Fokkers! 

Thanks to you all!

I am asking, is there a need for it when you account for all existing aircrafts in this size: CSeries, Embraer, new Russian and Chinese aircrafts?

Quoting ZRH (Reply 1):

If they van achieve a 25% lower CASM than Embraer I think the answer would be 'yes'!

Fair enough. But will this be possible at the moment? There would be a need of an real new engine. I doubt that you can achieve it only with the aircraft design an the material.
