Austrian Airlines has agreed to sell all of its Fokker aircraft fleet to Australian firm Alliance Aviation Services (AAS) for $15m.

The deal will see AAS, the world’s largest operator of Fokker aircraft, take 15 Fokker 100 and six Fokker 70 aircraft from the Austrian flag carrier in the period from December 2015 to December 2017.

Austrian Airlines said the Fokker sale will “rejuvenate” its fleet of mid-range aircraft as it intends to replace them with Embraer 195 aircraft from January 2016.

Austrian Airlines CEO Kay Kratky said: “The replacement of the Fokker fleet with Embraer aircraft will serve to significantly rejuvenate our fleet and offer Austrian Airlines better unit costs.”
