US Corporate Operator Signs Contract For 2 AW139 Helicopters

AgustaWestland, a Finmeccanica company, is pleased to announce it has signed a contract with a US based corporate operator for two AW139 twin engine helicopters. This latest order follows the sale of two other AW139s to two US based corporate customers in March 2012 and continues the growing popularity of the AW139 in the important North American corporate helicopter market. Over 30 AW139s are now in service or on order by customers based along the Norhteast corridor from Boston to Washington.

AgustaWestland Philadelphia will build the helicopters at its Northeast Philadelphia Airport facility and deliver one late this year and the second one in 2014. Once delivered the aircraft will primarily perform corporate passenger flights along the Northeast United States corridor.

Bob Brant, AgustaWestland Philadelphia’s VP Sales & Marketing, commented “We are delighted that the AW139 is now the medium twin helicopter of choice in the North American corporate helicopter market. Corporate customers recognize the AW139’s cabin space, performance and its safety features, thanks to its modern design, as key advantages over competing types.”
