Alliance

Fokker Services and Bombardier
On March 29, 2011, Fokker Services and Bombardier Aerospace entered into a strategic alliance for the launch of FLY, a program aimed at improving the availability of components and reducing the cost of repairs for Dash 8/Q-Series 100/200/300 aircraft operators. This Component Cost per Hour program will allow operators to more effectively manage life-cycle costs, providing them with improved service, parts availability and aircraft dispatch availability.

The service is modeled on Fokker Services’ well-established and highly successful ABACUS cost-by-the-hour program, which has been bringing cost predictability and parts availability to operators of post-production models for 17 years.

The strategic alliance between Fokker Services is one of a number of steps Bombardier is taking to enhance the operational value of its Dash 8/Q-Series 100/200/300 aircraft. In late 2009, Bombardier launched a life extension program to prolong the economic life of the Dash 8-100 turboprop to a target of 120,000 flight cycles from the original 80,000 flight cycles.
