Minimizing aircraft downtime

When taking an aircraft out of active service with the aim of re-introducing it with a new operator, aircraft owners and leasing companies will try to minimize down-time. Aircraft configuration, maintenance status and individual requirements are of great influence to the duration of the transfer period. In an arena where not all elements are easily available or easily influenced FLYFokker Take Next steps in to help. A reliant business partner with extensive experience willing to go that extra mile to ensure a successful transition period can make all the difference.

Preparing for re-introduction
The Take Next Support Solution accelerates the phase-out to re-introduction period. This service offers leasing companies and aircraft owners a lean, mean solution to prepare the aircraft for the next operator. Reducing costs, not only as a result of shortening the transition phase, but also by offering a transparent and predictable working package tailored to suit your needs.
