AgustaWestland has announced the signing of a contract for two additional AW139 helicopters in Japan with its distributor Mitsui Bussan Aerospace. The AW139s will be operated by the Japan National Police Agency (JNPA) in the Toyama and Osaka Prefectures. These JNPA helicopters are scheduled to enter service in 2014 and represent the first AW139 for the Toyama Prefecture and the second for Osaka Prefecture.

AgustaWestland’s head of region, NE Asia, Andrew Symonds said “The Company is delighted that JNPA has again selected the AW139 medium twin helicopter for its demanding law enforcement requirement. The AW139, as the market leader, is now considered the medium twin engine helicopter of choice for law enforcement requirements both in Japan and around the world.”
