Specialist regional aircraft lessor TrueNoord, has completed the purchase agreement for multiple new E195-E2 aircraft from Embraer. The next-generation jets will join Porter Airlines’ growing fleet on a long-term operating lease. All six aircraft are to be delivered in 2023 and are part of Porter’s first firm E2 order for 30 E195-E2s, confirmed in 2021.

Based primarily at Toronto Pearson International Airport, Porter will fly the new E2 aircraft to key destinations across Canada and the United States, with routes connecting to U.S. south- and west-coast destinations.

Jeffrey Brown, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at Porter Airlines, commented on the positive partnership with TrueNoord and how he looks forward to a long-term relationship between the two companies. “The growth plans that Porter is pursuing require support from dedicated partners. TrueNoord fits this mould, not simply from a financial perspective, but also by understanding our vision and how we intend to use the E195-E2 to help introduce a new level of service throughout North America.”
