Default Alliance acquires Austrian Airlines’ Fokker fleet

Alliance acquires Austrian Airlines’ Fokker fleet

http://australianaviation.com.au/201...-fokker-fleet/

Thats one way of ensuring spares and a/c for the future.

VARA might be interesting in a couple

It is interesting how they were downsizing their Fokker fleet a few months ago, am I missing something.

There cross ownership of the Slovakian maintenance facility and access to the European charter market are clearly of interest as well, with the potential slowdown in resource related charters here.

The a/c sold were Flight-West originals that were the 1st & 2nd to see service in Oz.

Alliance recently announced that they were planning to fly the F70/100 for at least the next decade. So, a secure spares.

The Austrian fleet is well known as Alliance has purchased their aircraft previously.

Based on info I have from ex-Oz, the price was cheap.

Missed it coming in the old livery (was elsewhere) but looks like the Alliance livery is now on the tail.

Not the best weather, hot and windy with the odd bit of rain (not a lot but enough to be a pain for photography)...
