Shree Airlines of Nepal has received the first of five AS350 B3e helicopters ordered in 2013 from Airbus Helicopters.

The new AS350 B3e is on display at the Changi Exhibition Centre as part of the Airbus Group exhibition at this week’s Singapore Airshow.

The airline currently has one AS350 B3e in its fleet and will use the new Airbus Helicopters for services that include disaster relief, search and rescue. The airline plans to expand passenger transport and utility mission operations into the neighbouring countries of Bangladesh, Bhutan and Myanmar in the future.

“Airbus Helicopters is ready to support Shree Airlines as it develops services in one of the world’s most challenging operating environments,” said Derek Sharples, managing director of Airbus Helicopters Southeast Asia. “It can count on the AS350 B3e’s capabilities, as well as the full resources of our technical hub in Singapore.”

When deliveries of all five new AS350 B3e are completed, Shree Airlines will be the largest operator of this model in Nepal.

“We look forward to growing our business with the AS350 B3e. Its enhanced performance fits well with our strong focus and commitment towards providing safe and high quality services to our private and governmental customers, along with multinational organizations that include the United Nations,” said Shree Airlines managing director Sudhir Mittal.
