TrueNoord Increases Footprint in Canada With the Lease of 2 Embraer E175s to Air Canada

“North America is a growing market for TrueNoord and we are delighted to welcome Air Canada to our list of high-quality lessee airline customers in the region” comments Anne-Bart Tieleman, TrueNoord CEO

TrueNoord has purchased two Embraer E175s on lease with Air Canada. The recent closing of this transaction marks the completion of their acquisition of ten Embraer aircraft from Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC), first announced in January 2023.

The aircraft are already deployed across the Air Canada Express network which flies to over 70 destinations across Canada and the United States.
