Fokker

Air Baltic Fokker 50 at VNO

Travelling recently between Vilnius and Riga airport, I noticed the small regional aircraft was a Fokker 50. I’m actually not sure if I’ve flown in a Fokker before, but it was actually quite cool to see that many of them are still in use. Why is that cool? Well, simply because Fokker was a Dutch company that built airplanes 😉 It is unfortunate that this is not the case any more, although several parts of the former company are still involved in parts, service and leasing under the Fokker brand. Interestingly though, a new company called Rekkof and now renamed to Next Generation Aircraft is planning to modernise existing Fokkers to extend their lifetime and compete with other modern regional aeroplanes. There seem to be some plans that a factory will be opened in Brazil, but it has been quiet lately. I’m wondering if the project will actually take-off? (haha)

Btw, have you ever seen such airport interior?
