Cybersec NordVPN equivalent?

You "can use" ad-blocking with Air, yes.
But if you mean Air implementing a feature like Nords, then no, because that's not Airs job to do and is more of a marketing gimmick to insinuate more features, rather than something which is actually crucial for security.
If you want ad-blocking, then simply add the appropriate software or hardware. Whether that's a pi-hole or a browser plugin such as uBlock Origin.

im biased towards pi-hole
Problem with pi-hole is that it is not browser aware, and cannot adjust content based on filters unlike uBlock Origin.
As an example, take your pi-hole rules, and try to visit a heavy ad-infected site like BBC/CNN/NYT.
Do you see the issue? Pi-hole will nullroute the ads. but leave blank spaces in your browser.
The new adlocking technology is not only about sending trackers to 127.0.0.1, but also about re-drawing the origin.
Solutions like uBlock Origin are better for desktop users. Pi-Hole is better for mobile devices without native ad solutions.
