Fokker 100 Operation

The Fokker 100 offers the possibility of operating a highly reliable and mature aircraft on short to medium haul routes. The accumulated service experience amounts to more almost 10 million flight hours and landings. Fleet leaders have flown more than 50,000 flying hours. Continuous product improvements are made by Fokker Services based on operator experience and any new regulations. With a design life of 90,000 flying hours or landings the average age is only around 35,000 flying hours or 30,000 landings.

Full scale structural testing of at least 180,000 landings has been carried out with the findings solved early on during production, ensuring very few structure-related ADs in the future.

Based on favorable in-service experience, 6 years and 12 years task intervals are currently in the process of being escalated by 30% for reduced maintenance costs.

Overall, the Fokker 100 is a very mature and reliable aircraft and optimized for high cycle operations.
