January 19, 2024 By Helicopters Staff
Airbus has signed an HCare Initial contract, a by-the-hour services contract, with Heligo Charter Private Limited for six Airbus H145 helicopters deployed for offshore and onshore operations in India.
Under this five-year contract, Heligo can replace scheduled and unscheduled components within 24 hours and pay a fixed rate per hour of helicopter flown. Airbus states this will help Heligo to bring down their maintenance costs and the need to keep a regular inventory, thereby providing them with enhanced fleet availability for streamlined operations.
“We are proud to be the first operator to offer a fleet of Airbus Helicopters’ 5-bladed H145 to ONGC for offshore operations in India. Once these helicopters are delivered this year, Heligo will have the largest H145 fleet in India serving both offshore and onshore missions. The H145 is a modern, multi-role helicopter which is suited for Indian conditions, offering exceptional performance and operational economics,” said Nayan Jagjivan, Chairman, Heligo Charters Private Limited.
