"We are investing in our F-100 fleet on these scheduled major overhaul or C-checks as some may call it, fully painting the aircraft and installing the new airline colors and livery and in addition we are investing in refurbishing the interior. The work is being performed first on the two original aircrafts that were here when we arrived as new management". Ramiz explained The third Fokker, registered as DCC was just received last year after a complete overhaul prior to being delivered to DAE. We will also send it to Mexico after the other aircrafts return to service. It will also be painted in DAE colors. All installed fabric seat covers will be replace with leather seat covers made new for this aircraft " Ramiz explained.
