Saab developed the
Saab 340 to meet regional airline operators' requirements for the
highest possible standard of passenger comfort at minimum cost. A
systematic and logical design process resulted in an aircraft with a
pressurized cabin, three-abreast seating and two turboprop engines on a
low wing. It entered service in June 1984 following an intensive four-year
development and certification program. From the first deliveries, Saab
has continually developed and improved the aircraft. These developments
have been driven by engineering refinements, responses to customer needs
and airworthiness requirements.
From the outset
the Saab 340 was aimed at two types of operation; as a feeder aircraft
to the major airline hubs and as a regional airliner providing services
to markets where economics had previously precluded larger aircraft. The
Saab 340 is the world's most popular regional airliner in the 20 to 39
seat category currently in production.
