Fokker 70 is a medium sized regional turbofan jet designed and built by Dutch aircraft manufacturer Fokker. It's first flight occurred on 4 April, 1993. 48 airframes were build (47 + 1 prototype). The production ran from 1992-1997. A last Fokker build aircraft. A shortened version of Fokker 100. Still in service, particularly in Australia.

Many airlines required an airliner larger than short haul regional airliners like the Fokker 50 and ATR 42 but smaller than medium-range jetliners like the MD-80 and Boeing 737. However, until the Fokker 70, such a plane did not exist.

Fokker developed the Fokker 100 by cutting sections of the Fokker 100's fuselage, shortening the plane by about 15 feet but keeping its wings and tail.
