City-air Germany AG Orders two Saab 340B aircraft, Expands into
Corporate Shuttle Operations

City-air Germany AG will introduce 32-seat Saab 340B service on routes
serving the capital city of Berlin from Muestner/Osnabruck and Dortmund
as well as introductory service into Salzburg from Berlin's Templehof
airport. The airline caters to business travellers by offering
convenient and higher levels of customer service. The carrier will be
the second operation to fly the Saab 340 in Germany on domestic and
international routes.

- We selected the Saab 340 due to the ideal combination of passenger
service and operating costs. We intend to maximize the convenience
factors that the 340 provides our passengers in the form of overhead
storage, leather seating, a wardrobe available at entry, hot meal
service and a comfortable cabin environment, said City-air President
Ernst Brokbals.

City-air intends to provide convenient, quick service in markets where
there is little direct service. The aircraft will be used to complement
its existing ATR-42 and with time replace the four Metros that service
City-air's schedule today. City-air presently serves eight domestic
markets in Germany and the international destination of Copenhagen.

Saab Aircraft Leasing, Inc. will work closely with City-air in the
coming weeks to customize the interior and exterior of the aircraft and
to integrate the airline into Saab Aircraft's customized support service
plans.
