LCI signs for another 10 helicopters
Lease Corporation International orders another 10 AgustaWestland helicopters.
Lease Corporation International has signed a contract for another 10 AgustaWestland helicopters, five AW139, three AW169 and two AW189 aircraft.
This latest contract expands on the number of firm orders placed by Lease Corporation International (LCI) in 2012. LCI also reconfirms its commitment to the AW169 programme ahead of civil certification, which is on schedule for summer 2014. Deliveries of AW139s to LCI are taking place ahead of schedule with the handover of three aircraft earlier this year and two more scheduled for the second half of 2013.
Crispin Maunder, executive chairman of LCI, commented: “The AgustaWestland AW139/169/189 helicopter family are market leaders in their respective categories and LCI is delighted to be able to meet the increasing demand from both our current and new customers to lease these fine machines.”
