The acquisition of 10 high-performance AS350 B3e helicopters by Helipartner Thailand reflects increasing demand for high-performance utility helicopters across ASEAN countries, Eurocopter said in announcing the deal.
The order, which was formalised at the Paris airshow this week, will support Helipartner Thailand’s helicopter leasing services throughout the region. Deliveries of the aircraft will be from 2013 to 2015.
“After our first AS350 B3e delivery in May 2013 and its successful leasing in Indonesia, we are delighted to expand our fleet with this new order and pursue our leasing market development with the helicopter type,” said Tisanu Ratanarat, CEO of Helipartner Thailand.
“It will enable our customers to support their countries’ increased demand for a utility helicopter that delivers the proven performance of the A350 B3e.”
