Will Begin Operations During The Lunar New Year Holidays
Beijing Capital Helicopter has expanded its Eurocopter-built rotorcraft inventory with the addition of a VIP-configured EC135 P2+ for passenger transport, tourism and emergency medical services operations. A ceremony was held on January 15th in Beijing, where the President of Beijing Capital Helicopter, Mr. Xu Li Dong, accepted the Eurocopter EC135 P2+. Beijing Capital Helicopter will begin operating the new helicopter during the upcoming Lunar New Year holidays, offering aerial tours over selected tourist attractions.
This brand new light, twin-engine helicopter joins Beijing Capital Helicopter’s current fleet of five Eurocopter AS350 B3 Squirrels. Incidentally, they are the largest operator of this helicopter type in China. “Beijing Capital Helicopter has played an important role in developing China’s business aviation sector, and the addition of its EC135 P2+ will further enhance the company’s ability to grow with the market,” said Norbert Ducrot, Senior Executive Vice President for Asia Pacific.
The EC135 is a multi-purpose helicopter with an advanced design and state-of-the-art technology. Following today’s delivery to Beijing Capital Helicopter, there are 14 EC135s in China – performing operations for business aviation, emergency medical services, law enforcement and passenger transport. “The general aviation segment in China has been growing rapidly, resulting in higher demand for light helicopters in the last few years,” said Eurocopter China CEO Bruno Boulnois. “We have set up a comprehensive support network in the country to cater to the current and future needs of our customers as we anticipate the upward trend to continue.”
Beijing Capital Helicopter is an affiliate of Hainan Airlines Group, offering a range of vertical lift solutions that include charter flights, aerial tours, business transportation, aerial prospecting, and medical airlift.
