AgustaWestland Strikes Deals with Saudi Aramco, Heliconia
AgustaWestland has inked distribution agreements for its AW139 with both Saudi Aramco and Heliconia Aero Solutions. Saudi Aramco has placed an order for one additional AW139 intermediate twin helicopter to be used for offshore and VIP transport operations in Saudi Arabia. Heliconia ordered two AW 139s, plus a number of options, to perform offshore transport missions in Morocco. Pending delivery of the two helicopters, set for June or July this year, Heliconia has meanwhile started its offshore transportation missions with two AW139s leased from AgustaWestland since February.
