Waypoint places two AW139s with Heliconia
April 5, 2017 By Waypoint Leasing
Waypoint Leasing has announced that it has delivered two additional AW139 helicopters to Heliconia Group, a regional provider of helicopter transportation and related support services. These two aircraft join a third AW139 leased from Waypoint, all in support of oil and gas operations in Northwest Africa. Over the last month, Waypoint has placed eight aircraft on lease with operators, demonstrating improving market conditions and Waypoint’s success in remarketing aircraft.
Con Barber, director of sales and relationship management for the Middle East and Africa, said, “We are excited to place two additional AW139s with Heliconia, further strengthening our relationship with the operator and underscoring Waypoint’s focus on providing mission critical helicopters to operators in need. We continue to be encouraged by the market demand in Africa as well as emerging markets broadly, as evidenced by this transaction and our recent placement of two remarketed aircraft in South America – a Sikorsky S-76C++ and Sikorsky S-92.”
