Amapola Flyg

se-amapola-seltr-arlanda-030419-full.jpg

Amapola Flyg is a small Swedish airline which in 2019 owned 22 Fokker F50 planes in working order and four classified as historic ones. All of the planes are roughly 30 years old or even older. Amapola flies both cargo routes as well as scheduled passenger services, connecting some small airfields in the north with Stockholm Arlanda. At the time when this text was written, Amapola operated the passenger routes Hemavan-Kramfors-Arlanda and Lycksele-Arlanda.
This aeroplane type was designed already in the 1950s as a military plane for parachute jumping. Civil versions were soon made also and they were known as Fokker F-27 Friendship. Later on, larger versions of the Friendship fitted with turboprop engines became available and then the brand name was changed to Fokker F50. All of Amapola Flyg's Fokker machines are of the type F50. This one, SE-LTR was originally PH-JXC. It first flew in July 1991. It has flown for Fokker, Rio Sul, Norwegian Air Shuttle, Swe Fly, Denim Air, VLM and Cityjet before Amapola acquired it in December 2018. It entered Amapola's service only in February 2019 and that's why it had not yet received any of Amapola's tapings at the time when this picture was taken.
