“As the top service provider in the industry, we celebrate the extension of the platform and are pleased that Bombardier and its operators continue to look to the ABACUS FLY support program for their    Dash 8 aircraft needs,” said Erik Geertsema, Vice President Business and Strategy Development, Fokker Services. “This renewed alliance signifies Fokker’s commitment to ensuring regional aircraft continue to operate competitively and efficiently while upholding the strong reputation of the Dash 8 aircraft fleet.”
