Two AW139s sold to US corporate customers
AgustaWestland has announced the sale of two AW139 helicopters to two undisclosed American customers.
This latest order follows the sale of two other AW139s to two US based corporate customers in March 2012.
Over 30 AgustaWestland AW139s are now in service or on order by customers based along the Norhteast corridor from Boston to Washington.
AgustaWestland Philadelphia will build the helicopters at its Northeast Philadelphia Airport facility and deliver one late this year and the second one in 2014. Once delivered the aircraft will primarily perform corporate passenger flights along the Northeast United States corridor.
Bob Brant, AgustaWestland Philadelphia’s VP Sales & Marketing said “We are delighted that the AW139 is now the medium twin helicopter of choice in the North American corporate helicopter market. Corporate customers recognize the AW139’s cabin space, performance and its safety features, thanks to its modern design, as key advantages over competing types.”
