ILA Berlin Air Show 2014. Service agreement worth 25 million euros over ten years



Airbus Helicopters, May 21, 2014 - BERLIN – Today, Airbus Helicopters and ADAC Luftfahrt Technik (ALT), the maintenance arm of ADAC Luftrettung, signed a parts-by-the-hour service contract for the air rescue organization’s EC145 T2 fleet.

The ten-year service agreement with a volume of some 25 million euros covers a comprehensive range of services for the new aircraft.

The package for 14 new EC145 T2 helicopters includes technical services adapted to ALT’s requirements and provided at fixed costs. In addition, maintenance is organized so as to ensure the highest levels of helicopter availability possible.

"The availability and safety of our helicopters is absolutely fundamental to our daily missions in Germany, from responding to emergencies to transporting intensive care patients from one hospital to another,‖ said Thomas Hütsch, chief executive officer of ADAC Luftfahrttechnik GmbH. ―Accordingly, we rely on fast and efficient maintenance processes, which is exactly what Airbus Helicopters supplies under this power-by-the-hour contract. We’re looking forward to this new phase of our successful decades-long partnership."

"The chief priority of Airbus Helicopters is the satisfaction of our customers—over the entire life cycle of their helicopters," says Guillaume Faury, president of Airbus Helicopters. ―So we’re delighted that ADAC Luftfahrttechnik has chosen our parts-by-the-hour contract. They can depend on us to deserve their confidence in our service and to help keep their helicopters flying safely and cost-effectively."

With a fleet of more than 50 helicopters, ADAC Luftrettung is one of the largest air rescue organizations in Europe. In Germany, the company operates the EC135, BK117 and EC145 models of the Airbus Helicopters range. The new EC145 T2 will gradually replace the BK117.
