Airlift Is Awarded Helicopter Transport Service Contract by the Norwegian Coastal Administration


Airlift AS, August 31, 2016 - Following a competitive tendering process, Airlift AS has been awarded a contract involving transport of Norwegian pilots to and from large vessels and vessels carrying hazardous and/or pollutive cargo serving the oil and gas terminals at Kårstø, Sture, Mongstad, Nyhavna and Melkøya.

The contract was awarded in competition with several bidders, and the Norwegian Coastal Administration (NCA) considered Airlift's offer the most economically advantageous. The assessment of tenders considered personnel security, security of supply, and price.

– The new agreement will provide us with a safe and good helicopter service, at a lower price than the current agreement. I am very pleased with the outcome, says Erik Blom, Director of Pilot Services of the NCA.

– We are grateful for the confidence placed in us through the awarding of this contract. The contract is one of the largest in the company's history. For us this is an important step towards further growth and expansion, says Stian Hårklau, CEO of Airlift AS.

The contract will commence on 1 July 2017, and will have a duration of six years, with an option for a two years' extension. The service will be performed with three new Leonardo helicopters, AgustaWestland AW169.
