TAM and Jet Midwest to Offer the Only FAA and EASA Approved Saab 340A/B Cargo Conversion

Täby Air Maintenance (TAM) has been approved by the U. S. 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.

“I am very glad that we, as the only company globally, have a dual EASA-FAA approval for our high-end Saab 340A and Saab 340B cargo conversion program,” says Pär Gulle, TAM managing director. “We are now able to offer any US or European operator a first class 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.”
With dozens of Saab 340A’s and -B’s already converted, the successful conversion package is now being offered for the U. S. market in a joint venture with Kansas city-based Jet Midwest Group. Conversion rebuild of the first U. S.-destined aircraft is well under way at the TAM workshops in Örebro, with delivery scheduled for 2016, Gulle summarizes.
