GKN Aerospace says that a total of 39 Fokker aircraft were placed in 2017, compared with 42 transactions in 2016. Currently, approximately 400 Fokker aircraft are operational worldwide. 

GKN Aerospace’s Fokker services business facilitates placements of the aircraft by sellers and lessors through its FLYFokker program and remarketing services.

‘We’re glad about the mix of existing and new Fokker operators and many of the available Fokker 70s have been placed,’ said Fokker services’ director of aircraft remarketing, Peter van Oostrum. ‘Going forward we continue to see a healthy supply and demand situation for all three Fokker types.
