Bristow Commences First Flights for Petrofac in the Central North Sea


Bristow, April 04, 2016 - Bristow Helicopters Limited, the market leading helicopter logistics company, has commenced flights for Petrofac in the Central North Sea (CNS).

The contract, which sees Bristow flying Petrofac passengers to the CNS for the first time, commenced in March and will continue for three years, with two additional one year options.

Alan Corbett, Managing Director of Bristow Helicopters Limited, said: “The commencement of these flights for Petrofac is a milestone in our relationship as it is the first time, after many years of ad-hoc work, that Bristow has been contracted to operate directly for Petrofac. We look forward to growing this collaborative partnership.

“Using a mixed fleet of Sikorsky S-92s and EC225s, we will operate a new operations model with Petrofac as they seek to flight-share with other operators. We will begin operations with flights direct to a platform in the Central North Sea adding additional scope with crew change activity to other CNS locations later in the contract.”

Established in the UK by London-born Alan Bristow in 1955, Bristow Helicopters offers offshore transportation, fixed wing services, Search and Rescue (SAR) services, and most recently, UAS operated offshore installation inspection services.
