Halifax, Nova Scotia-based Chorus Aviation has signed lease agreements with Philippine Airlines for three new Bombardier Q400 aircraft.

The new Q400 are scheduled for delivery in the third and fourth quarters of 2018, and the agreement marks Chorus Aviation’s first lease transaction in Southeast Asia, a fast-growing market for airlines.

Chorus Aviation is a holding company that has been leasing its owned regional aircraft to Jazz’s Air Canada Express operation since 2009. It also owns Jazz Aviation and Voyageur Aviation, with expertise in contract flying operations, engineering, fleet management, and maintenance, repair, and overhaul.
