I was searching Wikipedia and I typed Carpatair. Some really interesting information i found there, regarding the introduction of jet service for them.
The Carpatair fleet consists of the following aircraft (at October 2005):
9 Saab 2000
5 Saab 340B
Carpatair will introduce the first jet aircraft to its fleet with the purchase of three Fokker F100 aircraft from the bankrupt Canadian airline Jetsgo. It will use two on its own services and sub-lease the third to sister airline Moldavian Airlines (ref: Airliner World, October 2005).

That would be quite a step up from the 34- and 50-seaters they have operated so far. Despite the fairly strong economic growth in Eastern Europe, I find it somewhat hard to believe that Carpatair would be able to profitably operate two 100 seaters on its current network.
BTW I haven't found any confirmation of this story on their website:
