JSC Euro-Asia Air Orders 2 More AW139 Helicopters

AgustaWestland, a Finmeccanica company, is pleased to announce that JSC Euro-Asia Air of Kazakhstan has ordered two additional AW139 medium twin helicopters. These offshore configured AW139s will be used to perform transport operations in Kazakhstan's section of the Caspian Sea.

One of the two aircraft will be provided with the Full Ice Protection System (FIPS) allowing flights into known icing conditions. The FIPS will enable all weather operations, when other types would be confined to the hangar. This latest order from JSC Euro-Asia Air, a leading operator in Kazakhstan, marks a further expansion of the AW139 fleet in Kazakhstan's commercial helicopter market where the customer already operates four AW139s. A total of five AW139s are currently in service in Kazakhstan.


Emilio Dalmasso, Senior Vice President Commercial Business Unit, AgustaWestland said "We are very pleased to have signed this contract for two additional helicopters with Kazakhstan's leading helicopter company. With four aircraft already in service this order highlights the customer's satisfaction with the AW139 and its ability to accomplish the mission with unequalled effectiveness in some of the most demanding operational conditions".
