KLM's Final Schedule For Fokker F70's Announced

The Fokker F70 has served faithfully for many years, delighting passengers, plane spotters and aircraft enthusiasts alike. However,  the time has come for one of Europe's major operators of the type to retire these classic happy jets. 
In true KLM style, the Dutch airline is giving lovers of the Fokker F70 a change to be aboard one of the final flights for this soon to be classic airliner.

That the very last commercial Fokker flight will depart from London is no coincidence. Soon after the first passenger flights took place on 17 May 1920, two Fokkers joined the KLM fleet as the first passenger aircraft to be owned by KLM: these Fokker IIs bore the registration numbers H-NABC and H-NABD. The first commercial flight with a Fokker II was on 15 September 1920 to London. The arrival of the Fokker 70 from London on 28 October will complete the circle.

KLM Cityhopper began replacing its Fokker fleet with the modern E-Jet, Embraer 190 and Embraer 175+ in 2008. These new aircraft are facilitating further expansion of the existing network, higher flight frequencies, and lower costs. This wide-ranging modernisation means KLM Cityhopper can contribute to a more efficient and environmentally friendly operation in which quality and passenger comfort are top priorities.
