CommuteAir (C5, Cleveland Hopkins) has taken delivery of its first E170, which it plans to use to grow its passenger charter operations.

N780NC (msn 17000280) was ferried post maintenance at Saltillo to Houston Intercontinental on October 19, 2023, Flightradar24 ADS-B data shows. It has yet to begin revenue operations.

The 14.6-year-old jet was acquired by the airline earlier this year from Nordic Aviation Capital. It was previously operated by Airnorth (Australia) (TL, Darwin) and will join CommuteAir's existing fleet of seventy-five E145s. The smaller Embraer regional jets operate exclusively on behalf of United Airlines (UA, Chicago O'Hare).
