FAA Approves Seaborne Airlines Certification of Saab340B
New Caribbean Flights to Launch in April
March 28, 2013

Seaborne Airlines has cleared a new milestone with the recent certification by the Federal Aviation Administration of the Saab 340B aircraft. Nonstop flights on the Saab 340B will begin April 1 between the St. Croix Henry E. Rohlson (STX), St. Thomas Cyril E. King (STT) and Tortola Terrence B. Lettsome (EIS) airports and Luis Muñoz Marín Airport (SJU) in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

A new route between SJU and Melville Hall Airport (DOM) in Dominica will also start April 1.

Two new additional routes will commence June 1 between SJU and Aime Césaire Airport de Fort-de-France (FDF) in Martinique and the Pointe-à-Pitre International Airport (PTP) in Guadeloupe. All six routes will be flown with Seaborne’s new 34-seat Saab turboprop. The Saab operates with two pilots and a flight attendant providing in-flight service, and has a lavatory.

“After eight months of incredible work by the Seaborne operations team, we are happy and proud to introduce the 34 passenger Saab 340B aircraft to the Caribbean,” said David Ziemer, chief operating officer of Seaborne Airlines, in a written release. “I want to personally thank the Seaborne team for their incredible efforts over the past several months. This truly marks a major milestone in Seaborne Airlines history.”

This 34-seat Saab aircraft has the comfort of most modern jetliners and the increased speed will provide the fastest overall journey on all routes Seaborne flies. And the Saab’s fuel-efficient aircraft will help keep Seaborne competitive and eco-friendly. With the addition of the Saab 340B, Seaborne is poised for even greater growth throughout the Caribbean and will add needed lift for local inter-island travel as well as easier ways for tourists to connect to the Caribbean worldwide.
