AW139 Enters Service With Sky Shuttle Helicopters

Ceremony Marks New Helos, New Facility At Hong Kong Heliport

AgustaWestland announced this week the first two AW139 medium twin helicopters owned by Sky Shuttle Helicopters Limited of Hong Kong have entered operational service. An official ceremony to celebrate the entry into service of the aircraft, as well as the opening of a new helipad and passenger lounge at the Hong Kong Heliport, was held on April 16.

The 12 seat-configured AW139 helicopters are used by Sky Shuttle Helicopters Limited to provide helicopter shuttle flights between Hong Kong, Macau and Shenzhen.

The new helipad features a roomy and modern 6,000 square feet check in and passenger lounge facility providing high levels of comfort and passenger service. The event marks the start of the second stage of Sky Shuttle's expansion project which includes the introduction of an additional four AW139 helicopters as well as the building of a second helipad.

"It gives us great pleasure to celebrate the opening of the new helipad and passenger lounge of an operator with such a worldwide reputation for excellence," said AgustaWestland CEO Giuseppe Orsi. "The AW139, thanks to its outstanding characteristics for the task, will provide a major contribution to Sky Shuttle's expansion project."

AgustaWestland states over 430 AW139 helicopters have now been ordered by over 100 customers in more than 40 countries all over the world performing many tasks including VIP/corporate transport, passenger shuttle services, offshore transport, EMS/SAR, law enforcement, fire fighting and troop transport with civil operators, government agencies and military customers.

Sky Shuttle Helicopters has over 20 years experience, and is the sole commercial helicopter operator between Hong Kong, Macau and Shenzhen.
