Colombia-based Avianca has signed a three-year FLYFokker TakeCare flight hour agreement with Fokker Servicesfor rotable component support of its 10 Fokker 50s, becoming the second customer in the Americas to sign up for the FLYFokker TakeCare solution.
The TakeCare solution is for existing operators as part of the total FLYFokker programme. It focuses on increasing technical dispatch reliability (TDR) and reducing direct operating cost (DOC), while improving passenger comfort.
“Avianca is glad to be a partner of this respected organisation and we feel that this agreement will enhance our on-time performance of the Fokker 50, which will continue to operate for years to come,” remarked Miguel Montoya, VP M&E at Avianca.
