Specializing in customized travel options, SpanAir offers a fleet of aircraft fully equipped with the latest in aviation and safety technology, including all weather and IFR facilities. With the addition of the 407GX, featuring the first integrated Garmin G1000H flight deck, SpanAir now has one of the most modern and advanced fleets operating in India.

Bell and SpanAir have enjoyed a long relationship starting with the delivery of their first aircraft, a Bell 407, in 1996; one year after SpanAir was established. Since then, the company has also added a Bell 429.
“The Bell 407GX is gaining momentum all over the world as the most advanced light single engine helicopter on the market,” said C.M. Hwang, Bell Helicopter's regional sales director in Asia Pacific. “Customers are discovering that it is an ideal aircraft across mission needs providing superior performance with trusted reliability. We are pleased that SpanAir continues to place their trust in Bell Helicopter. It is yet another endorsement of the value of the 407GX.”
