The Fokker 50, so-called due to its capacity to seat up to 50 passengers in a standard configuration, belongs to the category of Turboprop Airliners and is known for its excellent reliability and durability. The Fokker 50 is also more spacious than many other aircraft in its class, including the Dornier 328 and the Saab 340, offering a more comfortable service. Due it being powered by a turbo-propeller engine, this aircraft lacks the maximum cruise speed and range that you would find with a jet. However, the Fokker 50 is still capable of a decent range for an aircraft of its type of over 2000km, further than both its Dornier and Saab rivals. Overall, the combination of this aircraft's space and performance make it attractive for large groups looking for short-haul flight options.
