Nordic Aviation Capital has closed another Bombardier CRJ1000 delivery to Garuda Indonesia.

The aircraft (MSN 19032), which is the fifth of 12 units, is being placed under an operating lease agreement from the operating lessor.

The Indonesian carrier placed an order for 18 CRJ1000s in February 2012, with options for another 18 aircraft. The firm order includes six aircraft directly from the airframer, and another 12 from Nordic Aviation Capital.

According to Flightglobal's Ascend Online database, Nordic Aviation Capital will deliver another two aircraft (19033, 19034) through July. Two more will be added in 2014 and the remaining three in 2015.

The operating lessor is rumoured to have secured backing from the Export Development Canada for the 12 CRJ1000s.
