Posted 5 June 2015 · Add Comment

Finmeccanica–AgustaWestland has delivered an AW139 intermediate twin engine helicopter to the Government of Ivory Coast for passenger transport missions, making it the first AW139 to enter service on the Ivory Coast.

Several recent sales of AW139s in French speaking West African nations have brought the total number of aircraft sold across Africa to over 60, making it the best-selling helicopter in its class.

The growing fleet of AgustaWestland helicopters in this region will be soon supported by a newly appointed Authorised Service Centre. This will soon bring AgustaWestland services closer to the customer’s operations so they can benefit from easier access to maintenance services and spare parts.

To date, orders for almost 900 AW139 helicopters have been placed by over 220 customers from almost 70 countries to carry out a wide range of missions including offshore transport, law enforcement and homeland security duties, EMS/SAR, utility, firefighting, executive/private transport, and other government roles.
