Sweden-based Täby Air Maintenance (TAM) has delivered its 3oth Saab 340 cargo conversion.

The Saab 340B was converted on behalf of Latvia-based RAF-Avia, which already operates a mix of cargo and passenger-configured Saab 340s and ATR 72s, and an Antonov 26.

TAM managing director Pär Gulle said: “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 a year ago complemented with the same service offered for the ATR 72.”

TAM delivered its 25th Saab 340 cargo conversion in February to global lessor Jetstream Aviation Capital.

Jetstream is also the launch customer for TAM’s Saab 2000 cargo conversion programme. TAM started converting the high-speed turboprop Saab 2000 regional airliner into cargo configuration in January.

The cargo conversion backlog for the 350 – kits as well as full conversions – stretches into 2023, said TAM.

TAM’s design organisation team is currently preparing further development of the Saab 340 cargo conversion programme.
