TAM secures two Saab 340B cargo conversion contracts
Täby Air Maintenance, TAM, has been selected by Scottish airline Loganair to convert two Saab 340B’s to cargo configuration. This is a follow on to a previous, highly successful, conversion of two Saab 340A’s for Loganair. TAM is the only company worldwide that has been approved by the US Federal Aviation Administration, FAA, as well as the European Aviation Safety Authority, EASA, to perform a full cargo conversion of Saab 340A and Saab 340B. The first aircraft, G-LGNM, is already at TAM’s Örebro workshops, scheduled for delivery in mid-January 2017, with the second aircraft, G-LGNN, being delivered to TAM in early February.
– I am very glad for this new order from our long-term customer Loganair, says Pär Gulle, TAM Managing Director.
– It is a token of trust in our abilities, already proven by our earlier conversion of two Saab 340A’s for them and strengthened by this new contract.
– Earlier this year we got a dual EASA-FAA approval for our high-end Saab 340A and Saab 340B cargo conversion program, providing a highly cost effective way to convert this well-renowned, fuel efficient passenger aircraft into a profitable freighter capable of carrying 36 m3 (1,280 cu ft) of cargo, Pär Gulle summarizes.
