Why SAAB 340’s

There have been as many as 459ea SAAB 340’s built between 1983 and 1999 with the first production aircraft still operative. This gives that the type will be operative for many years to come.

SAAB 340 has moved from a commuter aircraft for the big airlines to become an excellent aircraft for startup companies and for bigger regional airlines to start and build new routes because of the types low operating costs.
