Amsterdam-headquartered regional aircraft lessor TrueNoord has successfully leased two Embraer E190 jets to Swiss carrier Helvetic Airways AG (Helvetic).
The aircraft (MSNs 19000603, 19000607) will be based in Zurich and will operate on flights to Europe-wide destinations. They will be available for ACMI to airlines and tour operators as well as Helvetic’s own scheduled operations. The two aircraft will soon be deployed on Helvetic’ existing network and therefore no additional crews will be recruited.
“These additional availabilities allow Helvetic to maintain a stable flight schedule even under the current challenging conditions and to guarantee customers a high level of reliability, punctuality and planning certainty,” said Helvetic Airways CEO Tobias Pogorevc.
These aircraft bring the carrier’s fleet to 18 aircraft: four Embraer E195-E2s, eight E190-E2s and six E190s.
Pogorevc continued, “TrueNoord specialises in regional aircraft and is therefore an ideal partner for us. The two modern Embraer E190s are the perfect addition to our fleet.” “Despite the supply chain and MRO challenges, TrueNoord is able to make these regional aircraft available to Helvetic just in time for the peak summer travel period” said Ahmed Ali, Sales Manager – Europe, at TrueNoord.
TrueNoord CEO, Anne-Bart Tieleman, adds: “Helvetic Airways is an outstanding Swiss regional airline with a strong reputation for quality and reliability. The long-standing partnership with its ACMI customer is a testament to its value proposition and we are proud to be their lessor partner.”
