Abu Dhabi Aviation (ADA) has signed a contract with Leonardo for two additional AW139 intermediate twin engine helicopters. The deal was announced at the ongoing Dubai Air Show.
The aircraft will be used to perform offshore transport mission with deliveries expected in 2017, further expanding ADA’s AW139 fleet which today accounts of 15 units in service primarily supporting the oil &gas industry.
The order is part of an agreement for 15 helicopters including the AW139/AW169/AW189 types with deliveries through to 2019.
“Owning a fleet of ultra-fast aircraft and a state-of-the-art safety system has helped Abu Dhabi Aviation to drive its operations to the highest level of customer service," said H.E. Nader Ahmed Al Hammadi, Chairman of Abu Dhabi Aviation.
“The services provided by Abu Dhabi Aviation are driven by customer’s needs. These helicopters are widely used in the UAE, the GCC and the Middle East."
ADA’s AW139s benefit from the support solutions provided locally by AgustaWestland Aviation Services LLC, an Abu Dhabi Aviation (ADA) and Leonardo joint venture delivering thorough support and maintenance services in the region.”
