The period in which those airplanes operated were during a time in which airlines were looking for inexpensive alternatives for larger aircraft.
Citations have been used in scheduled service. King Airs have been used in scheduled service, and the King Air 200 has been offered in an airline version by Beech as well as through another vendor by STC. Cessna 441s have been used in airline service, as well as its unpressurized cousin, the F406. But all of these airplanes are part 135.
And as you mentioned, several aircraft were developed from smaller corporate models, such as the Beech 99, 1900, and Swearingen Metroliner.
