AgustaWestland, February 17, 2015 - AgustaWestland announced today four new orders for the AW139 in West Africa, with four undisclosed government customers recently choosing the best-selling intermediate helicopter for passenger transport roles.

The AW139 confirms his versatility as the intermediate choice for such a mission thanks to undisputed comfort and performance. Many heads of state and of government have chosen it expressly because of these features.
