Yep, since Saab2000 is so fast, you are able to outfly most other props in similar seat sizes, by adding routes. A plane makes not money when it is in the air, but when it takes off! Smaller than most regional jets, it draws pax due to preference of smaller a/c as well. Compared to the DHC-8-400Q, the Saab was available some 10 years earlier. You can build an entire airlines only based on Saab flying almost all routes in central Europe (e.g. Paris).
