TrueNoord Leases Second Embraer E190 to Cobham

Amsterdam-based aircraft leasing company TrueNoord has completed the transition of a second Embraer E190 from Mandarin Airlines to Australia’s Cobham Regional Services on a six-year operating lease. The aircraft was integrated into Cobham’s fleet in May and is already operating charter flights from its base in Perth.

“We are very pleased to further strengthen our relationship with Cobham, supporting their mission to progressively expand their fleet with modern and flexible aircraft well suited to the diverse Australian terrain,” said Carst Lindeboom, TrueNoord’s Sales Director for the Asia Pacific. “We are proud to be part of Cobham’s growth, as they continue to deliver vital services ensuring connectivity and safety across the country. This is our second aircraft in Australia with Cobham, further cementing our footprint in this important region, as we steadily develop our presence in (the) Asia Pacific.”

“The E190 is not only one of the most environmentally friendly jets in the world, it offers substantially better operational uplift performance, particularly in hot weather at regional ports such as in the Pilbara,” said Tim Pirga, Cobham’s Business Development Director. “It is also able to fly further distances compared to similar size aircraft. This reduces the need for additional fuel uplift in regional and remote locations and cuts CO2 emissions by up to 15 percent per trip,” he added.

He further commented that the company is pleased to have received a second Embraer E190 from TrueNoord which has now entered service and is supporting natural resources projects in Western Australia.

Cobham Regional Services acts as a critical link in the energy and resources sector, providing fly-in/flyout (FIFO) services in support of mining, oil, and gas projects throughout Australia. The company also provides flexible, bespoke charter flights with a full range of service options to Australia’s city centers and regional destinations. Cobham has been investing in the future of FIFO by progressively renewing its fleet with modern aircraft that provide greater flexibility of rosters, suitability for regional aerodromes, increased reliability, and low carbon emissions.
