“This investment will enhance our customers’ flight experiences by providing them with the premium service and comfort they value and deserve” said Darrell Richardson, Gulfstream CEO.
Saab 340Bplus aircraft features include comfortable seating for 34 passengers, large, easy-to-access overhead bins, personalized flight attendant service, an active noise reduction system, and convenient on-board lavatories.
Gulfstream will integrate the six new aircraft into its fleet over a nine-month period beginning in mid-November 2011 when the first 340Bplus is slated for delivery. Each aircraft will be subject to a period of inspection and certification under US and Bahamian aviation regulations to ensure full compliance with all safety and operational requirements prior to initiating scheduled passenger service. In-service dates for the new aircraft type will be announced upon receipt of regulatory approvals.
