RVL Aviation has expanded its turboprop freighter fleet with the addition of a Saab 340B(F) cargo aircraft from lessor Jetstream Aviation Capital.

The aircraft, serial number 340B-223, is the first of a multi-aircraft commitment between Jetstream and RVL and will be used for ad-hoc cargo charter and operations on behalf of the airline’s international logistics customers.

“Everyone at RVL is enormously excited by the prospect of operating the Saabs and taking advantage of the substantially larger cargo volume and payload that they offer. We are confident that they will be key tosecuring new business,” said managing director Dave Connor.

RVL is based out of the UK’s East Midlands Airport and in addition to the Saab 340 aircraft, operates four Beech King Air, six Reims-Cessna 406, two Cessna 404 and one Cessna 402 aircraft for passenger and cargo charter and long-term contract operations for third parties.

Jetstream Aviation Capital, founded in 2010, is a Miami-based aircraft lessor specialising in commercially operated regional turboprop aircraft.
