Eurocopter has delivered two EC225 helicopters to Waypoint Leasing. They are the helicopter leasing company’s first Eurocopter helicopters.

Waypoint Leasing will lease them to Bond Helicopters Australia. Bond will operate them on a five year contract with the PTTEP Australasia Group of Companies (part of Thailand’s national petroleum exploration and production company). The helicopters will be used for oil and gas offshore operations.

“We are pleased to receive delivery of the EC225s, the first Eurocopter aircraft in our growing fleet, and to partner with Bond Helicopters Australia, a premier provider of energy support services to one of the fastest growing offshore oil and gas markets in the world,” said Ed Washecka, CEO of Waypoint Leasing. “Waypoint’s principals have worked with Eurocopter as well as Bond and other Avincis companies for many years, and we appreciate their ongoing support. This agreement exemplifies our approach to building lasting relationships with our partners.”

Dominique Maudet, Eurocopter’s executive vice president of Global Business and Services, said: “These deliveries open the way for a long and fruitful relationship with Waypoint, while also underscoring confidence in the EC225 for oil and gas operations.”
