Saudi Aramco Signs Contract for a Further AW139 Helicopter



Saudi Aramco Signs Contract for a Further AW139 Helicopter


AgustaWestland, April 22, 2014 - AgustaWestland, a Finmeccanica company, is pleased to announce that Saudi Aramco has placed an order for an AW139 intermediate twin aircraft, further expanding its fleet of AW139 helicopters and confirming its confidence in the best selling model in its category.

This latest AW139 will be used to perform offshore and VIP transport operations in Saudi Arabia.

The AW139, thanks to its unmatched versatility, performance, reliability, safety and mission capability, has found an outstanding success in the Middle East, with more than 130 units sold to a number of customers to perform the widest scope of commercial and government operations including offshore transport, VIP transport, SAR/EMS, utility, troop transport, patrol, law enforcement and homeland security. The AW139 is well positioned to find even greater success across the region.

Over 200 customers from more than 60 countries have ordered almost 760 AW139 helicopters so far. The AW139 is part of the AgustaWestland Family of new generation helicopters that includes the AW169 and AW189 models, which possess the same high performance flight characteristics and safety features as well as sharing a common cockpit layout, design philosophy and maintenance concept. This commonality will allow more effective operations for customers operating helicopter fleets across the 4 to 8.5 tonne categories.
