Specialist regional aircraft lessor, TrueNoord, took delivery of their fourth Embraer E195-E2 at São José dos Campos in Brazil last week.

These E2 jets complement our existing portfolio of 39 Embraer E1s, offering our customers a range of high-performing, fuel efficient and environmentally friendly E-Jets to fulfill diverse requirements.” The acquisition of these factory new aircraft is part of TrueNoord’s long-term strategy to invest in new generation aircraft in the 50-150 seat category.

This transaction further establishes the whole Embraer family of E-Jets as a cornerstone of our portfolio of modern regional aircraft. We appreciate the ongoing support of their professional team and look forward to further positive collaboration as our business, and fleet, continues on its upwards trajectory.”
Arjan Meijer, President and CEO of Embraer Commercial Aviation, said, “TrueNoord is an important lessor for Embraer on the E1 program; it’s good to see that partnership continue to deepen with this move into Embraer’s E2 family.
