That's the updated bird, IL-114-300, first flight like a month ago
Up to 68 pax to 800ish nm, ferry range 2700ish nm. 52k lbs mtow

Mostly glass cockpit on this one and the engines were upped to 3100 hp a side.
Ain't a bad ATRsky for shorter legs. Advertised burn is like 1100lbs/hr

It's called a "Saabski".
SAAB
Civilian aircraft
  • Saab 90 Scandia (32 passenger short-/medium-haul aircraft: manufactured 1946–1954, 18 built)
  • Saab 340 (30–35 passenger short-haul aircraft: manufactured 1983–1999, 459 built)
  • Saab 2000 (50–58 passenger high-speed turboprop airliner: manufactured 1992–1999, 63 built)
Ilyushin
Passenger aircraft
  • Il-14 "Crate" twin-engined transport aircraft developed from the Il-12, 1950. (1348 built)
  • Il-18 "Clam" (1946) four-engined airliner prototype, 1946
  • Il-18 "Coot" turboprop airliner, one of world's principal transport for decades, 1957. (678 built)
  • Il-62 "Classic" long-range jet airliner, world's largest airliner when first flew, world's first mass-produced airliner of its category, 1963. (292 built)
  • Il-86 "Camber"medium-range wide-body jet airliner, first Soviet wide-body and the world's first quadro-jet with 100% two floors, 1976. (106 built)
  • Il-96 long-haul widebody airliner developed from the Il-86, world's fastest wide-body aircraft, 1988. (30 built)
  • Il-114 regional aircraft, 1990. (20 built + at least two of the new -300)
Saab is an aviation company with a history, but so is Ilyushin. IL built 5x the airliners by airframe count, and ever since the IL-76 was designed (960+ built) civilian stuff was a side hustle.
