    General News

Gran Colombia de Aviacion (GCA) has suspended its operations in late April 2022 due to financial problems. The airline had six F50s since 2017 (three officially registered in Colombia and three still registered with parent company Avior in Venezuela), but  they have never flown revenue flights for the airline.

Qantas, who possesses 20% of the shares of
Alliance Airlines, intends to acquire the remaining 80%, subject to approval by the Australian competition authorities. The deal would include the entire Alliance fleet of over 40 Fokker aircraft.

In March 2022 the
Philippine Air Force took their fifth CASA C295 on strength. This implicates that the end for the F27 era is rapidly approaching.

On 2 May 2022
Amapola Flyg started to operate its first international scheduled flight from Stockholm-Arlanda to Kokkola-Jakobstad in Finland with a stopover in Kramfors. The connection is offered on four days per week, of course using F50 equipment. During the July-August 2022 period it will be changed to a non-stop flight.
