Description: Saab 340 is a light, twin-engine turboprop aircraft capable of carrying from 30 to 36 passengers while cruising at 285 knots (500 mph) on routes of 500 nautical miles (900 km). The Saab 340 cabin is quiet, spacious and comfortable. The aircraft can operate from short airfields and provides fuel efficiency compared to regional jets. To date, Saab has produced three main versions known as 340A, 340B/340B+ and 340B+ WT. Saab 340B+ WT features extended WingTips (WT) among other enhancements. 340A is powered by two CT7-5A2 engines rated at 1,735-shp and the remaining aircraft are powered by two CT7-9B engines rated at 1,870-shp each.

The Saab 340 can assume the role of airliner, VIP transport, corporate, cargo, maritime patrol and airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) aircraft. The AEW&C variant is fitted with Ericsson PS-890 Erieye radar system. The Saab 340 AEW&C is also referred to as S 100B Argus. The Swedish Air Force and Thailand are the only operator for this aircraft variant. The search and rescue variant of Saab 340 airliner is known as the Saab 340SAR-200. Saab 340SAR-200 features 360-degree scanning search radar, FLIR, wide observer windows rescue equipment and life raft drop systems, system operator consoles, expanded communication systems and a sophisticated flight and operations management system. The rear of the cabin is arranged in a quick-change layout, carrying either passengers or cargo.
