Helvetic Airways says goodbye to its remaining two Fokker 100

Kloten, Switzerland - Swiss charter operator Helvetic Airways ceased its Fokker 100 operations permanently as of June 14. The airline will replace its two remaining Fokker 100 with new Embraer jets.

Helvetic Airways' both Fokker 100 are more than 20 years old. The planes registered HB-JVF and HB-JVG were ferried to Bratislava by the operator.

Both aircraft are owned by Swiss operator and each of them accumulated more than 50, 000 flight hours while in service with the airline.

The Swiss charter carrier was initially planning to operate its Fokker 100s by 2020 but it leased four Embraer E190 from the Danis lessor Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC) for the peak summer season.

Besides the leased Embraer E190s, Helvetic has two more Embraer E190 in its fleet.

The airline also has 12 new-generation Embraer E190-E2 in its order book waiting to be delivered. The deliveries are set to begin this year in September.
