C&L Aviation Group has completed and delivered the seventh Saab 340B aircraft, on schedule, to Legends Airways. Legends Airways, which has taken possession of all aircraft, initially received its first aircraft in mid-2021.
There has been a resurgence in interest in the Saab 340 aircraft during this same period and C&L has sold over twenty of these aircraft, including the former fleets of JAC and HAC.
“In all my years dealing with the Saab 340 aircraft I have never seen demand for this aircraft at current levels. There has been a distinct increase in demand for the Saab 340B aircraft with both passenger and cargo operators. This has led to most parked Saab aircraft being restored to service,” said Chris Kilgour, CEO of C&L Aviation Group. “With so many customers asking for aircraft and there being low availability, the market dynamics have changed. Demand has outstripped supply, resulting in increased sale prices for the Saab.”
