Helijet Rekindles Contracts with British Columbia Resorts
Helijet has renewed helicopter service contracts with Fishing Resorts in the Haida Gwaii Islands located on the North-West Coast of British Columbia. The three-year service contracts with renewal options exercised are valued at over $12 million. Helijet will provide exclusive summer-season helicopter service to the resort lodge locations utilizing twin-engine Sikorsky S-76 helicopters, which will be operated and maintained by a Helijet team located from both the Sandspit and Masset Airports.
The 13-passenger helicopters will fly guests and supplies to and from these remote lodges, which are situated along British Columbia’s west coast. The S-76 helicopters will also be available for general charter to other clients at times when they’re not scheduled to serve Helijet’s resort clients. Helijet also has a year-round operating base located at Sandspit Airport, with a complete hangar and office infrastructure, mission specific helicopters and experienced flight crew, in support of all business sectors.
