NAC: “We have increased the portfolio to over 130 aircraft and our mainstay ATR, Fokker 50, Saab, ATR and Dash 8 fleet now includes several Boeing 737s and Bombardier CRJs. NAC has also concluded a number of lease renewals in the past few months – at longer renewal terms than anticipated. We are seeing that many airlines are being cautious holding on to a fleet type they are comfortable with in these turbulent times and that situation is good for us,” Martin Møller, Chairman.
