Who Flies the Fokker 100?

First flying in 1986, and entering service with Swissair in 1988, the Fokker 100 is now an ageing and rare airliner which is getting harder and harder to find a flight on.

Along with its Fokker 70 sister, the 100 was heralded as a modern, quiet and efficient regional jet with seating for up to 100 passengers.

Only 283 examples were built, but some major airlines operated the type, including American Airlines, KLM, Air France, British Midland, Austrian, Swissair and USair.

Today only a handful of airlines are still flying the Fokker 100, with few operating in the western world.
