Several More Of The Helicopters On Order For Offshore Missions
Bel Air of Denmark has taken delivery of its second AW139 medium twin helicopter from AgustaWestland. The 12-seat configured aircraft will perform offshore transport operations and joins the first helicopter, named “Spirit of Agusta”. A number of additional AW139s are expected to enter service with Bel Air in the future.
Delivered in 2009, the first helicopter has performed exceptionally well, logging over 12,000 landings in offshore operations so far, whilst delivering Bel Air’s customers with outstanding reliability by achieving a 99,8% availability rate. With a second AW139 now about to enter service, Bel Air will further expand its offshore transport business.
Bel Air also placed an order for two AW189 helicopters in December 2011. Complementing the AW139, the larger AW189 will expand the mission capabilities Bel Air can offer its customers for longer range offshore oil and gas transportation requirements whilst being the only helicopter in its class to comply with the very latest safety standards.
The AW139 and AW189 are part of AgustaWestland’s family of new generation helicopters that share the same design philosophy to deliver savings to operators in the areas of maintenance, support and training. (Image provided by AgustaWestland)
