The new Saabs replace smaller 19-seat Beechcraft 1900D aircraft, offering greater comfort, added cargo capacity and class-leading fuel economy.

To celebrate the fleet upgrade, Silver Airways has launched a new sale offering discounts as follows:

One of the most advanced turboprops operating today, the 34-seat Saab 340Bplus is distinguished among the world’s most eco-friendly aircraft, burning 60% less fuel per hour than a 70-seat regional jet.

Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, which operates cruises to The Bahamas, reported a rise in revenue in the first quarter, but expenses related to its initial public offering put the cruise operator at a loss for quarterly profits.

Prime Minister Perry Christie leaves for New York City today where, along with the Premier of Bermuda, he will speak at the christening of Norwegian Cruise Lines new cruise ship Breakaway.
