Brazil’s Omni Taxi Aero has closed the US Export-Import financing of three AgustaWestland AW139s, with TD Securities arranging the financing.
This is the first time that Ex-Im has supported exports of AgustaWestland helicopters to a commercial, rather than government, operator. The helicopters were built in the manufacturer’s Philadelhia facilty.
The helicopters will be used to support off-shore contracts with Petrobras.
TD Securities has closed more business jet and helicopter Ex-Im loans that any other bank.
