The H175 expands its operations to Denmark and Mexico

The H175 expands its operations to Denmark and Mexico


Airbus Helicopters, August 29, 2016 - Airbus Helicopters’ new 7-ton class H175 helicopter now counts Denmark and Mexico among its countries of operation, increasing its total to five countries.

Airbus Helicopters’ new 7-ton class H175 helicopter now counts Denmark and Mexico among its countries of operation, increasing its total to five countries, with operations already underway in the Netherlands, Scotland and Ghana.

The start of operations in Denmark was announced on August 23 by Belgian-based NHV Group, which will fly oil & gas transport missions for Maersk Oil out of Esbjerg in the North Sea. NHV has already been flying similar missions for other customers from the North Sea bases of Den Helder, Netherlands and Aberdeen, Scotland, and also in Western Africa.

Since their entry-into-service in December 2014, NHV’s H175s have completed more than 3,000 flights and accumulated almost 5,000 flight hours. The company is the global launch customer of the H175 and has already received 8 out of the 16 units ordered.

Earlier in the summer, the H175 arrived in Mexico for the first time with operator Transportes Aéreos Pegaso, where it will be used to perform oil & gas operations and supporting seismic exploration activities in the Gulf of Mexico. Transport Aéreos Pegaso is the first company to operate the H175 on the American continent. It will receive its second H175 in 2017.

“We are pleased that the H175 is now proving its offshore transport abilities on three continents,” said Marc Allongue, head of the H175 program. “In addition, our VIP version, the first of which was delivered to a customer in July for yacht-based operations, has enlarged the aircraft’s operational capacity, with the public services version for SAR, EMS and law enforcement missions to follow next year.”

The H175 delivers on all counts with its long range, smooth ride, excellent payload lift, outstanding cabin comfort and low sound levels. It is also very cost-effective and easy to maintain. As of today, more than 100 H175 orders have been placed by customers from all over the world.
