Weststar Purchases Eight AgustaWestland Helicopters, Eurocopter EC225 Duo
Malaysia’s Weststar Aviation Services has placed an order for eight helicopters from AgustaWestland, consisting of a pair of large-cabin AW189s and a half-dozen AW139s. The helicopters will support overseas expansion of the company’s offshore oil and gas operations, including to Africa, South America and the Middle East. The AgustaWestland order follows another recent Weststar purchase of two EC225s from Eurocopter. The heavy-lift helicopters will also see service in the oil & gas sector. Weststar is based at Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Malaysia.
