Leonardo grows in Indonesia with new helicopter orders and deliveries

Indonesia remains a strong growth market for Leonardo thanks to a new order in the country for two light intermediate AW169s intended for corporate transport. The helicopters, the first of this model ordered in Indonesia, will be delivered by the end of 2018.

With the forthcoming deliveries of a further AW139 , which will be managed by the airline Travira for offshore operations, and two AW119Kxs for firefighting and helicopter rescue activities to the NUH operator, Leonardo further expands its presence in the helicopter sector in the country with a 100 percent fleet increase in the last three years.


New orders and deliveries are added to various models used for numerous roles, confirming the flexibility of Leonardo’s product range in the sector. Among these are the intermediate helicopter AW139 , managed by the government agency BASARNAS for search-and-rescue missions, other AW139s for offshore activities and a mix of single-engine and light twin-engine helicopters used for passenger transport.

Leonardo is also present in the country in various government and military programs, in defense systems provided to the Indonesian Navy and in the satellite observation sector.
