City-air Germany AG Orders two Saab 340B aircraft, Expands into Corporate Shuttle Operations

City-air Germany AG Orders two Saab 340B aircraft, Expands into Corporate Shuttle Operations City-air Germany AG will introduce 32-seat Saab 340B service on routes serving the capital city of Berlin from Muestner/Osnabruck and Dortmund as well as introductory service into Salzburg from Berlin's Templehof airport. The airline caters to business travellers by offering convenient and higher levels of customer service. The carrier will be the second operation to fly the Saab 340 in Germany on domestic and international routes. - We selected the Saab 340 due to the ideal combination of passenger service and operating costs. We intend to maximize the convenience factors that the 340 provides our passengers in the form of overhead storage, leather seating, a wardrobe available at entry, hot meal service and a comfortable cabin environment, said City-air President Ernst Brokbals. City-air intends to provide convenient, quick service in markets where there is little direct service. The aircraft will be used to complement its existing ATR-42 and with time replace the four Metros that service City-air's schedule today. City-air presently serves eight domestic markets in Germany and the international destination of Copenhagen. Saab Aircraft Leasing, Inc. will work closely with City-air in the coming weeks to customize the interior and exterior of the aircraft and to integrate the airline into Saab Aircraft's customized support service plans.
