Heli Union has received one Leonardo AW139 helicopter to support its offshore helicopter operations in Gabon. The market-leading intermediate twin-engine helicopter is leased from a renowned helicopter leasing company.
The leased helicopter will operate on a new contract in Gabon for offshore passenger crew change from Port Gentil Airport to the designated offshore base.
“AW139 is now becoming one of the most demanded helicopter types in oil-and-gas industry,” said Jean-Baptiste Olry, Heli Union sales and operations director. “We are pleased to lease yet another AW139 to support our offshore helicopter operations. This shows that our fleet keeps on growing and we are heading in the right direction.”
Heli Union is currently operating 8 AW139s in Africa and in Asia.
