Waypoint agrees H225 lease with Global Helicopter Service
Waypoint Leasing has placed an Airbus Helicopter H225 on lease with Global Helicopter Service GmbH.
The German operator will utilise the aircraft on utility and humanitarian support missions in Africa.
“Waypoint’s creative and responsive approach is a great match for GHS. GHS has a strong track record; operating humanitarian and mission critical helicopters, especially in West and Central Africa for the United Nations/World Food Program (UN/WFP), Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors without Borders (MSF) and other end users.” said Dominik Goldfuss, CEO, GHS. “The H225 will enhance our capabilities with its impressive performance and will allow us to serve new missions, which require the H225’s excellent load and range capabilities.”
GHS currently operates a small fleet of helicopters that includes a AS332L, as well as several smaller Bell helicopters.
“This transaction is further evidence of Waypoint’s diversification and our ability to exploit opportunities in new markets and new segments.” said Con Barber, director of Middle East & Africa sales and relationship management, Waypoint. “A large number of helicopters are used in humanitarian support roles in Africa and around the world, and GHS is a market leader in the segment. We are excited about executing our first lease with GHS and are confident that this transaction is the beginning of a long-term partnership.”
