Gulfstream Airlines to buy six Saab 340B Plus aircraft
Oct. 28, 2011, Fort Lauderdale, Fla. - Gulfstream International Airlines has signed an agreement with Saab Aircraft Leasing to buy six 34-seat 340B Plus aircraft.
The Saab 340B Plus aircraft features comfortable seating, large, easy-to-access overhead bins, an active noise reduction system, and convenient on-board lavatories.
Gulfstream is planning to deploy all six aircraft along its Florida/Bahamas routes, replacing smaller, 19-seat Beechcraft 1900D aircraft.
The carrier said that each aircraft will undergo a period of inspection and certification under US and Bahamian aviation regulations before being integrated into its fleet.
The carrier will deploy the Saab 340B Plus aircraft over a nine-month period beginning in mid-November 2011 when the first aircraft is scheduled for delivery.
