Leonardo AW139 Success Continues In The U.K.

Announces Sale Of Two Helicopters For VIP/Corporate Transport

Leonardo has announced the sale of a further two AW139 intermediate twin-engine helicopters to customers in the UK for corporate/VIP passenger transport, further strengthening its leadership in this market segment with a 50% share in the multiengine segment. Over 30 AW139s are currently operating in the U.K.

One aircraft will be managed & operated by Fairoaks Airport-based Starspeed, part of Luxaviation Helicopters – the world’s largest operator of VIP and VVIP helicopters. Starspeed already operates the AW169, part of the unique AW Family of helicopters that includes the AW139 and AW189. The other aircraft will be used by an undisclosed U.K.-based customer for corporate transport. Both aircraft will be delivered in the first half of 2018.

"We are ... adding the first AW139 to Starspeed’s existing fleet of 24 helicopters," said Gary Butcher, Commercial Director, Starspeed. "Our client specifically selected the AW139 for its performance, ride quality and, importantly, its cabin space that is unsurpassed in helicopters within this category. We are looking forward to the delivery of this bespoke aircraft to our managed U.K.-based charter fleet in early 2018."

“This AW139 will be a great addition to our global fleet of more than 270 fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters," said Charlotte Pedersen, Chief Executive Officer, Luxaviation Helicopters. "Starspeed supports our offering to clients of a truly integrated portfolio of helicopter and jet aviation services from the Luxaviation Group. The continued growth of our fleet allows us to offer our customers the most efficient and safe flights alongside exclusive VIP charter services.”
