Sky Shuttle sells Sikorsky helicopters
Sky Shuttle sells four Sikorsky S-76C+ helicopters and these were replaced by AW139s on popular helicopter shuttle services
AgustaWestland has pointed
out that Sky Shuttle had not replaced its AW139 helicopters with Sikorsky S-76
helicopters. In fact the AW139s had replaced the Sikorsky S-76C+ helicopters on
the company’s popular Hong Kong, Macau and Shenzhen shuttle services.
An inaccurate report was originally
published on a website esle where headlined “Sky Shuttle Sells Helicopters” in which
it claimed Sky Shuttle had “sold four of its five Agusta Westland AW139
helicopters and continues to operate with Sikorsky S76C+ helicopters”.
Sky Shuttle has actually
sold four of its Sikorsky S76C+ helicopters that were withdrawn from service in
2009 when they were replaced by the AW139 on its popular Hong Kong, Macau, Shenzhen helicopter shuttle services.
The original report was
inaccurate and has now been corrected but unfortunately it has been picked up
and reported elsewhere.
