Silver Airways has shifted to an all Saab 340B fleet, as it removes the last of its Beechcraft 1900D aircraft.

The last 19-seat B1900Ds operated in the regional carrier's Florida and the Bahamas network and are in the process of being sold, says Silver. The airline has 25 34-seat Saab 340Bs with 16 aircraft based in its Florida network.

Silver flies to 17 destinations in Florida and the Bahamas. It codeshares with United Airlines on the routes.

The carrier also has bases in Atlanta, Billings (Montana), Cleveland and Washington Dulles, as well as a codeshare with Delta Air Lines.
