The latest rumours:

VAR will get VH-FZH/11303 & VH-FZI/11333.

Alliance is expected to reduce VH-NKZ to spares (That is why it flew directly to ADL)
If so, this would be the 1st F-70 to be reduced to spares.

AA is reporting that FZH(11303) will shortly (End July) on the way to Oz.

FZI (11333) is expected to follow soon after.

There seems to be allot of "noise" to relaunch the F120NG which is a 125 passenger regional jet based on Fokker 100.

Current Flight International

Virgin Australia sees future for ageing Fokker fleet

Virgin Australia Regional Airlines (VARA) is in no rush to replace its ageing Fokker aircraft.

Chief executive Merren McArthur says the Fokker 100 jets and Fokker 50 turboprops are well suited to the carrier’s resource charter business model. “We did review the fleets and realised we needed a dedicated charter fleet to offer our clients,” she says.

Flightglobal’s Ascend Fleets database shows VARA’s 10 Fokker 100s have an average age of 21 years, while the average for its eight Fokker 50s is 25. That age, however, is of little concern to the airline.

VARA is planning to lease two more Fokker 100s this year, which will serve a new contract it recently won from BHP Billiton. VARA also operates a pair of Airbus A320s on charter services from its Perth base. Although parent airline Virgin Australia is a major Boeing 737-800 operator, McArthur says the A320s are better suited to operating in the Australian northwest.

Nevertheless, she adds that VARA has been able to call on Virgin’s 737s to operate some charter services, such as when a customer requires a larger shift-change.

Looks like the Fokkers will be around for a while.
