Bristow Group Signs Contract for 6 AW189 Helicopters
Mark Duncan, Senior Vice President - Commercial, Bristow Group said "Bristow Group is excited by the capabilities offered by the new AW189 aircraft and we see it filling a key position within the our global fleet, particularly given the planned retirement of the AS332 Super Puma over the next few years and the continuing growth of deepwater developments in our key future markets."

This is why we are sure the AW189 will prove to be a tremendous cost-effective addition to Bristow's fleet."
