AgustaWestland Strengthens Its Presence in the Italian VIP Market with New Orders

AgustaWestland, a Finmeccanica company, is pleased to announce a string of new VIP orders from different leading customers in Italy, thus further expanding its presence in this key market with its new generation helicopter models which feature the levels of safety, comfort, performance, technology, style and highly customized solutions the most demanding operators are looking for.

Contracts for a total of three AW139 intermediate twin and one GrandNew light twin helicopters have been signed by various private customers across the nation to provide VIP and corporate transport services.

The GrandNew helicopter is a market leader in serving the needs of the corporate community and combines the highest performance and the roomiest cabin in the light twin category. The spacious cabin allows for choice in a 5 or 6 seat configuration, which is custom-tailored and finished to the highest levels of craftsmanship. The elegant interior, whose visibility is given by two large windows, has been exclusively designed to meet the highest standards of comfort, with internal noise further reduced by efficient soundproofing. An advanced avionics suite allows highly developed satellite navigation, all-weather capability with synthetic vision and enhanced vision system for maximized situational awareness, safety and reduced pilot workload. Almost 340 GrandNew helicopters have been sold to more than 200 customers in almost 40 countries worldwide so far.

The world’s best-in-class and best-selling helicopter in its category, the AW139 has quickly become the new benchmark for executive helicopters. Designed to meet the rigorous standards of those who demand the best, the AW139 surpasses all other same category helicopters in capability, speed, ride quality and passenger cabin space. The AW139 is tailored to its customers who can choose from a range of mission equipment and interior layouts. A quick conversion from transport to mobile office or flying meeting room and reverse is possible. The AW139’s passenger cabin is separated from the pilot’s by a “limousine window”-like system, and the overall internal environment is provided with an air conditioning system and a selection from a wide range of electronic equipment both for entertainment and communication. Orders for nearly 740 AW139s have been placed by over 190 customers in almost 60 nations to date.
