Star Air (India) (S5, Belgaum) has firmed an earlier Letter of Intent to dry lease two E175s from Nordic Aviation Capital.

The preliminary agreement was reached during the 2022 Farnborough Air Show, although neither the carrier nor the lessor publicly announced it at that time.

The carrier did not disclose the timeline for the induction of the two aircraft nor its business plans. Its current fleet comprises one EMB-145LI and four EMB-145LRs, the ch-aviation fleets module shows. Star Air operates scheduled domestic flights in India with its main base at Belgaum and a secondary focus city in Bengaluru International.

Nordic Aviation Capital did not disclose the identity of the aircraft.
