Abu Dhabi Aviation to Acquire 15 AgustaWestland Helicopters


Abu Dhabi Aviation (ADA) has agreed to acquire 15 AW139, AW169 and AW189 helicopters scheduled to be delivered from 2016 through to 2019


Abu Dhabi Aviation to Acquire 15 AgustaWestland Helicopters


AgustaWestland, November 09, 2015 - AgustaWestland announced today that Abu Dhabi Aviation (ADA) has agreed to acquire 15 helicopters from the AW Family, comprising the AW169 light intermediate, AW139 intermediate and AW189 super medium twin types.

The aircraft are scheduled to be delivered from 2016 through to 2019 and will be used for a variety of missions, including offshore transport.

ADA currently owns 16 AW139 intermediate twin-engine helicopters that are primarily used for offshore transport missions.

Introducing the new generation AW169 and AW189 will allow the customer access to the unique advantage of AgustaWestland’s Family of new generation helicopters covering the four to nine-tonne weight classes.

These helicopters all possess the same high performance flight characteristics and safety features whilst sharing the same common cockpit concept and design philosophy. This approach delivers real cost savings in areas such as training, maintenance and support for operators having two or three of the models in their fleets.

The expanded fleet will also benefit from the support solutions provided locally by AgustaWestland Aviation Services LLC, an Abu Dhabi Aviation (ADA) and Finmeccanica-AgustaWestland joint venture.

Abu Dhabi Aviation was formed in 1976 with the Emirate of Abu Dhabi as its principle shareholder and is the largest commercial helicopter and fixed wing aircraft operator in the Middle East. Its global operations span five continents including Saudi Arabia, Sultanate of Oman, Republic of Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Eritrea, as well as Spain, Brazil, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and Australia.
