Niger Airlines wants to acquire a new F50 plane for the transport of people and goods, pending government approval. The carrier also plans to expand its flights in the West African sub-region. The airline has been or is still using one F50 on lease from Palestinian Airlines.

Palestinian Airlines has decided to sell their F50 fleet, consisting of two airframes and will stay in business.

World's largest Fokker operator Alliance Airlines (42 aircraft) has announced the purchase of 14 Embraer 190 regional jets, formerly used by COPA Airlines. Deliveries start in September 2020 and the Fokkers will remain the core of the fleet for many years to come.

On 280720 TUS Airways advised that operations remain temporarily suspended, due to the pandemic.

The new owner of Virgin Australia wants to rigorously standardize the fleet to Boeing 737-800, meaning that 43 aircraft, including all 14 F100s, need to leave the fleet.

Parked at Nairobi-Wilson airport.
10530 500CRF   5X-FFD Wilkins, ex Fly540 Uganda Ltd. Also this F27, parked at Nairobi-Wilson airport, is on the official "disposal of uncollected junk aircraft" list (see above). It did not receive bids last year in a similar auction.

20260 050   5Y-JRN Rudufu. The last Fokker on the "disposal of uncollected junk aircraft" list in Kenya Gazette

In our previous edition we suggested that SkyAviation might not have taken up the registration PK-ECI for their F100 11328. Yet, it had been applied to the aircraft. (fotografersha, via Jacques Vooren, Jakarta-Halim, September 2012)

The Albeda College for Aviation Services at Rotterdam The Hague Airport is constructing a new building. In the interior an obvious imitation F100 fuselage is built up for cabin staff training purposes. As we have no idea which airframe forms the basis for this object, we welcome your suggestions.
