The Saab 2000 is a modified and extended version of the Saab 340 airliner providing low operating costs and reliable performance and the comfort and service similar to that offered by a major carrier.
With a maximum speed of 665 km/h it is not only the fastest commercial turboprop airliner available on the market. It is also the only one that delivers jet speed with turboprop economy. Due to its jet-like performance, its capability to operate on short runways in ‘hot and high’ altitude conditions and rapid rates of climb and a service ceiling of 31,000 ft, the Saab 2000 is a powerful tool for evolving regional airline markets.
The Saab 2000 is currently available in four different versions:
> Airborne Early Warning & Control
> Maritime Patrol
> Signals Intelligence configurations
