TrueNoord, has delivered the first of six Embraer E195-E2 aircraft to Canadian operator, Porter Airlines.
The specialist regional aircraft lessor announced its purchase of these game-changing next-generation jets last year and the remaining five E2s will all join Porter’s expanding fleet on long-term operating leases during 2023.
The aircraft will operate from Ottawa, Montreal, Halifax and Toronto to cities across Canada and the United States with routes connecting to US south and west coast destinations.
“Porter Airlines is the North American launch customer for the E2 and TrueNoord’s first Canadian lessee” says Garry Topp, TrueNoord Sales Director – Americas.
“Porter have impressed us during the acceptance of the aircraft with their professional handling of the delivery process in Brazil.”
He affirms that the E2 is built to meet the future needs of regional operators and is evidence of Porter’s progressive approach. “It is an excellent asset, delivering next-gen fuel efficiency and long-range capability.
“As more airlines focus on their carbon footprint and enhancing their sustainability credentials, this new small narrowbody gives Porter the lowest emissions aircraft type in the market.
“We also know that they have invested significantly in elevating the economy passenger travel experience to deliver a unique all-inclusive product.”
