Worldwide Aircraft Services has confirmed it will work with Saab to obtain FAA approval for the installation of the Saab 340A cargo modification service bulletins into the 340B variant of the aircraft.

As part of the agreement, US-based Worldwide will oversee the FAA supplemental type certificate process on the aircraft while also becoming an approved maintenance organisation for the Saab 340 and 2000 turboprop aircraft.

It will also continue to provide MRO services for the regional jet to sales and leasing companies and operators around the world.

Jim McClean, president of Worldwide Aircraft Services, said: “The Saab 340 aircraft has served operators very well over the years in both passenger and cargo markets; the current market trends and aircraft values make this an ideal time to bring the Saab 340B aircraft to the freighter markets.”
