Exclases Holdings signs contract for another eight AW139s

AgustaWestland and Exclases Holdings signingAgustaWestland has announced that Exclases Holdings has signed a contract for a further eight AW139 helicopters. These aircraft add to the two units ordered in May this year and more AW139s are expected to be ordered in the near future.

This latest contract brings the total number of AW139s sold in Russia and the CIS countries to more than twenty in the last two years, adding a number of new nations and operators to the long list of customers which have made the AW139 the best selling helicopter worldwide in its category.

Emilio Dalmasso, senior vice president Commercial Business Unit, AgustaWestland said “It gives us great pleasure to sign this latest contract with Exclases Holdings just one month after the sale of two aircraft. Such a rapid growth in demand for the AW139 helicopter in Russia demonstrates that operators in Russia are increasingly recognising the unmatched operational capabilities and cost effectiveness of the type which is becoming the benchmark in its class in Russia. We foresee significant further opportunities for the AW139 in the Russian market.”
