Fokker Next Gen

Fokker is over a hundred years young and has always been known for its proven track record in designing light aircraft. And have the experience, platform, network and proven innovation power to take the lead in sustainable aviation technology. 

Fokker Next Gen forged significant ties with Latvia, signing a memorandum of understanding with the Ministry of Economics, a memorandum of understanding with the Liepaja Special Economic Zone (SEZ), and a cooperation agreement with Riga Technical University (RTU).

The project is in its early stages and plans to create up to 100 new jobs in Latvia over the next three years, working in close cooperation with Riga Technical University and Kurzeme coastal municipalities. 

Fokker Next Gen CEO Juriaan Kellermann commented: "The well-equipped Liepaja International Airport, which offers large areas suitable for the construction of our assembly line, is an excellent potential location for our production facility. Its direct sea connection to the Netherlands and the expected proximity to the hydrogen production facilities in the future are significant advantages. Moreover, the business-friendly climate in the region could also be very beneficial to our operations. We are excited about the opportunity to cooperate with the Liepaja Special Economic Zone (LSEZ) and other stakeholders to develop a stable aviation ecosystem in Latvia. The goal of this initiative is to support the eventual creation of a future Final Assembly Line in Liepaja, which will run parallel to the line in the Netherlands, significantly increasing our ability to produce innovative hydrogen-powered aircrafts."
