Örebro, Sweden: TAM, Täby Air Maintenance, delivered last week its 30th Saab 340 Cargo Conversion, a Saab 340B with msn 225. The aircraft was converted to full TAM Cargo Conversion Generation II on behalf of Latvia-based RAF-Avia, who already operates a mix of cargo- and passenger-configured Saab 340s, ATR 72s and Antonov 26.
Saab 340 cargo conversions has come to be an ever increasing business for TAM, where the current milestone of 30 conversions was preceded as late as in February this year when the 25th cargo converted aircraft was delivered. Cargo conversion backlog – kits as well as full conversions – stretches way into 2023.
With the successful Saab 340 Cargo Conversion program, complemented by the on-going new Saab 2000 Cargo Conversion program, TAM has a firm position as the world’s leading Saab 340/2000 conversion specialist. In addition, TAM’s Design Organization is currently preparing further development of the Saab 340 Cargo Conversion program.
- Delivering the 30th Saab 340 Cargo is yet another important milestone for us, and I am proud to state that we have firmly established us as the prime Saab Conversion Centre, says Pär Gulle, TAM Managing Director.
- We see an increasing demand for cargo-configured Saab 340s, which signifies its importance for us in parallel with our well-known MRO-service for Saab 340/2000, a little more than an year ago complemented with the same service offered for the ATR 72.
- I am confident that TAM, with our portfolio of services, ranging from premium cargo conversions, qualified MRO, remote line-maintenance to extensive AOG-services, will continue to be the natural first hand choice for any operator of regional aircraft, Pär Gulle states-
