Copterline Takes Delivery Of Its First AW139 Helicopter


AgustaWestland, February 24, 2008 - AgustaWestland is pleased to announce that Copterline of Finland has taken delivery of the first of two AW139 helicopters at AgustaWestland's Vergiate facility.

It will soon enter service operating scheduled flights between Helsinki, Finland and Tallinn, Estonia.

The second AW139 is scheduled to be delivered in April this year.

A new generation medium twin-turbine helicopter setting new standards in the medium twin market, the 12 to 15 seat AW139 has become the operators choice for scheduled helicopter services with leading operators worldwide ordering the helicopter as part of their fleet modernisation programmes.

Over 100 AW139 helicopters are now in service worldwide with orders placed for more than 330 helicopters by over 80 customers to perform a wide range of roles in over 30 countries.

The AW139 is the fastest helicopter in its class with a maximum cruise speed of 165 knots (306 km/h), reducing flight times while also providing greater passenger comfort due to its spacious cabin, low noise, low vibration levels and large windows.

The AW139 also has the largest baggage compartment of any medium-twin helicopter (3.4 m3 / 120 ft3) with access from both sides of the aircraft for fast loading and unloading. Helsinki-Malmi Airport based Copterline was established in 1960 and it is one of the leading helicopter operators in Finland providing Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) and high frequency scheduled flights on the Helsinki-Tallinn.
