Convair 340/440 are good for the short routes and readily available.

DC-6 is quite a good multi purpose workhorse for all ranges up to 2500NM so that could be what you want. But they are hard to come by.

I regularly find them on the used market with 4+ years on the D checks so my advice is keep on trying and you should find some. Or order new but I have no idea what the production queue is like. Better to get a few used ones I'd say.

Convairs.... or go for the 10-20 seaters no one else wants, you may even make cash with those in a JetAge game...

I'm not in the game so I can't see what's available but...  I've done OK with DC4s in the past, for short haul at least.  Also, I got off to a very good start last time with Vickers Vikings and Nord Nortalas.  Both seemed to readily and regularly available for constant growth and were cheap, if not the best thing out there.
