Gulfstream Intl Air to go back to 30 seaters

Found this article in the Nassau Guardian. Also little birdies tell me this VP wasn't supposed to be giving out so many details (oops). I wonder if this means no more 1900s, or if this will be supplimenting the 1900s.

Continental/Gulfstream International Airlines is positioning itself to be the primary airlift provider to the Out Islands, investing $85 million in a fleet of Saab planes that will double its airlift capacity into the country.

The first of Gulfstream’s new Saab 340 30-seater aircraft, which will replace its 19-seater planes, is set for delivery in November, according to Jim Swieter, the company’s Senior Vice President of International Development. Another aircraft is scheduled for delivery every month thereafter for two years.

The Saab 340 is still in production> I couldn't find anything that indicated it was though the article say new. Any ideas?
