340 cycle programme extension for Saab

At a Washington DC conference Saab Aircraft Leasing chief executive Michael Magnusson announced that he is evaluating extending the certificated hours on its Saab 340 fleet.
At the US Valuation conference, hosted by Commercial Aviation Online, Magnusson confirmed that the 340 fleet is certificated under the Maintenance Review Board programme to 60,000h and 90,000 cycles, with the leading aircraft having clocked 55,495h. Any extension could see the programme increased to 75,000h. “We need to see if they are any changes needed in the maintenance plan, but we are not ready to disclose yet,” he said.

Saab is also considering modernizing the interior of its 340 fleet but only if the cost of such a programme is one operators will accept.
