Waypoint Confident About Brazil’s Offshore Demand
Waypoint Leasing has closed an agreement to provide multiple aircraft for offshore support services in Brazil by Omni Taxi Aereo, the Limerick, Ireland-headquartered lessor said. The deal is with Omni Helicopters International S.A., a partnership of Stirling Square Capital Partners and Omni Group. Omni Taxi Aereo is Brazil’s largest offshore support operator by fleet size. All of the aircraft covered by the agreement are under long-term contracts, Waypoint said. Despite current conditions in global oil markets, “we think there’s significant long-term demand in Brazil and look forward to supporting Omni as it continues to grow worldwide,” said Waypoint CEO Ed Washecka.
