If this thread was brought up before I apologize. I am just curious if anyone knows where all Business Express Airlines SAAB-340's ended up. Being an ex BEX employee sure miss those SAAB, if any one have any information I would appreciate it.
I'll bet you $100 that given oil today, Delta Connection, American Eagle, and just about everyone else misses those SF340's right about now too even moreso than you do! Maybe they'll come back out of the woodwork from somewhere - never rule it out!

There are a couple websites that you can check and by searching Business Express, it'll list details regarding just their Saab340 if desired, or their entire fleet from airline start to airline end of service. I think one is Airfleets, there are a bunch, because I was just doing research into Stateswest Airlines out west and when I did a google search looking for detailed info into their fleet, a number of sties popped up. Try looking up aviationstartpage.com, thirtythousandfeet.com/airlines, or flyerguide.net. I think these are some of the sites that I used to start my searches and then they lead me to the right pages that had detailed info

The 'B' Models were split up between Colgan, Aerolitoral and REX (Australia) placed right away.
The 'A' Models mostly went to Chautauqua ( TWexpress and USAirways) Since then they have had a few homes. Some have gone overseas, some are with small carriers...sadly, some have been scrapped. If you want a plane by plane report send me an e-mail... I'm working on my updated list. Also, at no time were any of the planes painted into Eagle colors. They were all pulled off line and returned to Saab Leasing
