Bristow Group Signs Contract for 6 AW189 Helicopters

AgustaWestland, a Finmeccanica company, is pleased to announce that Bristow Group Inc. has signed a contract for six AW189 helicopters plus options for additional aircraft. The aircraft will be used to perform offshore transport missions. The contract marks a further expansion of the fleet of AgustaWestland helicopters operated by Bristow, which already has AW139s operating globally, and strengthens the already excellent relationship with AgustaWestland.

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."

Emilio Dalmasso, Senior Vice President Commercial Business Unit, AgustaWestland said "We are proud to have Bristow Group Inc. as the first large fleet operator to order the AW189 for its future long range high payload requirements. The AW189 is the result of extensive market assessment by the Company which has worked closely with its customers to ensure that it will deliver the capabilities, high productivity and very attractive operating costs the market expects from a state-of-the-art design in this category. This is why we are sure the AW189 will prove to be a tremendous cost-effective addition to Bristow's fleet."
