The Beechcraft 1900C is a small regional airliner that can also be booked as a group travel charter. It is capable of takeoff and landing on short runways, and designed to be safe even in inclement weather which makes it very popular for travel to more remote, less commercial locations.

The original Beech 1900 was replaced by two popular variants:

  • Beech 1900C
  • Beech 1900D

Both of these aircraft are still used by many regional airliners, and many people charter Beech 1900C and 1900D for both personal and business travel.
