Fokker signs contract to co-operate with COMAC in bringing the first Chinese business jet to market

Fokker Services is pleased to announce it has entered into a contract with Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China Ltd, COMAC, to convert the ARJ21-700 regional jet into a high end business jet.

Last year COMAC announced the first customer for the business jet variant of its recently certified aircraft for which the companies will now co-operate.

The conversion will be developed by Fokker and COMAC in The Netherlands, while the final conversion and delivery center will be performed at COMAC's manufacturing division, Shanghai Aircraft Manufacturing Company Ltd (SAMC) in Shanghai.

Converting a regional aircraft into a business jet builds upon Fokker Services long time expertise in similar conversions of regional aircraft such as Fokker F28, F70 and Bombardier CRJ700. Such conversions fit extremely well with Fokker's aircraft expertise which involves more than interior conversion alone. Fokker Services continues to create a reputation for providing very high quality conversions also for ACJ and BBJ aircraft.

Peter Somers, President of Fokker Services “We are proud of our strategic relationship with COMAC, whom we have been co-operating with intensely for the last few years. COMAC has recognized our expertise in aircraft conversions and completions. We are especially excited to be involved in the conversion of the first Chinese built Business Jet. We feel that together we are entering a new stage in aviation”.
