Helconia buys two helicopters for offshore transport in Morocco

AgustaWestland and Heliconia Aero Solutions have announced the delivery of two AW139 intermediate class twin-engine helicopters to perform offshore transport missions in Morocco.

 

The first aircraft has already entered service while the second one will enter operational service this week.

The contract signed by the customer also included options for two additional AW139s.

The best-selling helicopter in its category with a 56% share in the global market, the AW139 has become the benchmark platform for offshore transport operations and has achieved growing success for a variety of applications in the North Africa region. Over 210 customers from more than 60 countries have ordered nearly 790 AW139 helicopters so far. Nearly 700 AW139s are already in service around the world and the fleet recently surpassed the 1 million flight hour milestone.

The AW139 is part of the AgustaWestland Family of new generation helicopters that includes the AW169 and AW189 models, which possess the same high performance flight characteristics and safety features as well as sharing a common cockpit layout, design philosophy and maintenance concept. This commonality will allow more effective operations for customers operating helicopter fleets across the 4 to 8.5 tonne categories.

Heliconia Group, with companies based in Morocco and France, is already a major player in helicopter operations in those countries offering a range of services including aerial work and more recently offshore transport in Morocco. Heliconia is already working on further regional developments from its Morocco based operations.
