Miami-based lessor Jetstream Aviation Capital has delivered two Saab 340B(F) freighters to Florida-based IBC Airways.

The aircraft are the first of an ongoing multi-aircraft commitment between Jetstream and IBC, which will result in IBC eventually retiring its fleet of Saab 340A freighters in favour of the more advanced 340B.

The aircraft, serial numbers 340B-224 and 340B-274, will operate within the airline’s scheduled cargo network within the Caribbean.

IBC Airways is an FAA Part 135 air carrier and one of the largest global operators of Saab 340 cargo aircraft. IBC provides daily scheduled air cargo service among numerous destinations in the Caribbean and ad hoc charter services throughout the Americas. IBC Airways has been a leasing customer of Jetstream since 2011.

Jetstream Aviation Capital specialises in commercially operated regional turboprop aircraft, and is the largest global owner of Saab 340 and Saab 2000 aircraft and associated spares and engines.

Jetstream’s portfolio of over 150 aircraft also includes Cessna Caravan, Embraer EMB-120 and Pilatus PC-12 passenger and cargo aircraft.
