CHC said on Tuesday that the flight was part of a new 22-month contract with multiple extension options. It is also worth noting that CHC’s third H175 entered service in late April.

Mark Abbey, CHC regional director for Europe, Middle East, and Africa, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to continue our 17-year aviation partnership with Neptune who has become one of our largest North Sea customers.”

The company added that the contract was in addition to the two and a half-year contract extension CHC secured with Neptune in November to provide three AW139 aircraft operating to 32 different locations in the Southern North Sea from CHC’s Den Helder base in the Netherlands.

Karl Fessenden, president and CEO of CHC Helicopter, added: “We look forward to continuing to build on our relationship with Neptune and meet their aviation transportation needs for the duration of these projects and beyond throughout the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region.”
