AgustaWestland has appointed Mitsui Bussan Aerospace (MBA) as the distributor of the AW169 helicopter in Japan.

"The distributorship agreement, which includes a commitment for the sale of 20 AW169s in the Japanese market, further strengthens the partnership between AgustaWestland and MBA, which has been the official distributor of the AW139 in Japan since 2005," says AgustaWestland.

AgustaWestland says the AW169 is suitable for roles such as emergency medical service, search and rescue, law enforcement, fire fighting, electronic news gathering and passenger transport.
