JSC Euro-Asia Air Orders 2 More AW139 Helicopters
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.
