Saab 340B

The Saab 340B is the smallest aircraft in WestJet’s fleet and is operated by WestJet Link, in cooperation with Pacific Coastal Airlines. This compact and efficient two-propeller aircraft is used on shorter commuting routes to smaller cities and towns in Western Canada.

Compact, efficient size

The Saab 340B primarily services short-haul commuter flights from small and remote communities to larger cities and connection hubs. The size of this aircraft makes it ideal for use in smaller and more regional airports that may not be equipped to handle larger aircraft.

Rural and remote connectivity

Because the Saab 340B only carries 34 guests at a time, it is ideal for smaller and more remote communities with less demand for regular flights, where it would be inefficient to use a larger aircraft. This allows these communities to still benefit from regular connectivity to large hubs for business and connections, such as Calgary.
