Specialist regional aircraft lessor TrueNoord, has completed a sale agreement for a further eight aircraft with Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC).

This portfolio of aircraft, comprising one Dash 8-400 and seven E190s, will increase TrueNoord’s fleet of new and young in-production turboprop and regional jets to 94 aircraft.

The transaction comprises four aircraft operating in the USA, three in Europe, and one in Australia, further balancing the global spread of TrueNoord’s fleet.

The integration of all eight aircraft is targeted to be completed during Q2 2024.

Richard Jacobs, Chief Commercial Officer, TrueNoord, comments, “These are exciting times at TrueNoord, as we continue to develop the business and increase our global fleet.

“We appreciate the professionalism and support of the NAC team, and look forward to closing this mutually beneficial transaction, as both parties pursue their own strategic growth plans.

“It is encouraging to see the buoyancy of the regional aviation sector, with values and lease rates continuing on an upward trend.

“We are already exploring further lessor-to-lessor portfolio trades, and with our secure funding and robust team in place, we are well placed to consider new opportunities as the market continues to open up.”
