Eurocopter has signed deals in India for three helicopters configured for executive transport.

G. R. Constructions purchased a single AS350 B3e, said Eurocopter. This will be the Indian company's second AS350.

The company also signed two deals with undisclosed customers. One ordered an EC135 and the other an EC155.

"Business aviation is one of the key segments that is driving the growth of the helicopter market in India," said Eurocopter India chief executive Xavier Hay.

"These bookings mark a good start to the year. We will continue to work on developing other segments as well, such as emergency medical services, law enforcement, utility and aerial work," Hay added.

The deals were officially closed at the India Aviation 2012 show, which was held on 14-18 March, in Hyderabad.
