Kaan Air Orders AW139, 189 for VIP Transport in Turkey
Turkey-based Kaan Air has ordered two AgustaWestland rotorcraft configured for VIP transport. The order for one AW139 and one AW189 expands the presence of the AW139 in Turkey and marks the entrance of the AW189 into the Turkish helicopter market. This is also the first VIP-configured AW189 ordered in Europe where the type is currently operating in the offshore and SAR markets.
The AW139 currently holds a 56 percent share in the global market, with more than 200 customers in 60 countries. The AW189, certified this past February, is a multi-role super medium twin-engine helicopter that is designed for long range, high capacity VIP/passenger transport, offshore transport and SAR missions.
