Malaysia’s Berjaya Air has placed an order for an Airbus Helicopters ACH160, as well as an H175.
The deal will see the company become the country’s first operator of the ACH160, says Berjaya Air.
The company did not provide a deal value, or a delivery time for the two medium-twin helicopters.
“Our collaboration with Airbus, a world-leader in rotorcraft manufacturing, marks Berjaya Group’s commitment to excellence for our customers,” says Berjaya Corporation chairman Vincent Tan.
“These avant-garde helicopters will be a game changer and create a new business segment in the aviation industry of Malaysia.”
Berjaya Air provides charter services for various sectors, including offshore oilfield support and VIP transport.
