JSC Euro-Asia Air Takes Delivery Of Two AW139 Helicopters

Aircraft Will Service Offshore Oil Interests Off Kazakhstan

AgustaWestland said Monday that JSC Euro-Asia Air of Kazakhstan has taken delivery of two AW139 medium twin helicopters during an official ceremony held at AgustaWestland's Vergiate plant in Italy. The aircraft were accepted by Mr. Askar Janzharkenov, President and Mr. Talgat Zholdybayev, First Vice-President of JSC Euro-Asia Air.

These 15-seat offshore configured AW139s will be used to perform transport operations in Kazakhstan's section of the Caspian Sea. The delivery to JSC Euro-Asia Air, a leading operator in Kazakhstan, marks a further expansion of the AW139 fleet in Kazakhstan's commercial helicopter market.

Emilio Dalmasso, Senior Vice President Commercial Business Unit, AgustaWestland said "We are delighted to deliver these two AW139s to JSC Euro-Asia Air, a leading operator in the region. JSC Euro-Asia becomes the latest of a large number of offshore operators worldwide to operate the AW139 for this demanding task, strengthening the view that the AW139 is the best available helicopter in its class for offshore transport as well as for other missions". In addition to future business opportunities in Kazakhstan, AgustaWestland and the Sovereign Wealth Fund Samruk-Kazyna are now evaluating the setting up of a joint venture to build a civil helicopter training and maintenance center.

AgustaWestland says the AW139 is well suited for the offshore role. It can transport 12 to 15 passengers, and can be converted to and from various configurations. The AW139 delivers Category A (Class 1) performance from a helipad (elevated or at ground level) at maximum take-off weight with one engine inoperative capability. Energy-absorbing landing gear, fuselage and seats as well as high main and tail rotor ground clearance provide added safety for the passengers and maintenance teams while on the ground.
