AW139 Enters Service With Saudi Aramco

AgustaWestland, a Finmeccanica company, is pleased to announce that the AW139 medium twin helicopter has now entered service with Saudi Aramco. Saudi Aramco's fleet of AW139 helicopters is being used to support oil and gas operations in Saudi Arabia and operate alongside a fleet of seven AW109 Power helicopters that were delivered in 2006.

To mark the event a ceremony was held at Ras Tanura, Saudi Aramco's main helicopter base in Saudi Arabia, in the presence of the Italian Ambassador, His Excellency Eugenio d'Auria and representatives from Saudi Aramco and AgustaWestland.

"I am delighted to celebrate this important milestone and the successful collaboration between Saudi Aramco and AgustaWestland" said Renzo Lunardi, Senior Vice President Commercial Business, AgustaWestland. "The successful introduction into service of the AW109 Powers and now the AW139s is an achievement we are all very proud of."

The AW139 is the market leader in its weight class with over 430 aircraft sales and nearly 200 aircraft deliveries since 2004. The AW139 has set new standards in the offshore oil and gas support market due to its new technology, high performance, enhanced safety and attractive operating costs.
