UK based operator SaxonAir Charter has ordered a Leonardo-Finmeccanica AW109SP Grand New directly from the manufacturer.

The helicopter will be operated through SaxonAir’s rotary division SaxonAir Helicopters. As well as the operation of a mixed fleet of aircraft from Mustangs to the Gulfstream G550, the company runs its own Helicopter department serving clients around Europe.

The helicopter will serve both the London and the wider UK market and offered to all present and new clients for a faster, more convenient way to travel.

Max Randall, head of Sales and Operations of SaxonAir Helicopters said:  “As a group we’re all very much looking forward to the addition of the brand new helicopter. We are very well known for being a quality fixed wing charter operator and aircraft management company so the purchase will boost our presence and scope in the helicopter market.”

John Parnell, sales director from Sloane Helicopters added: “As the UK and Ireland Leonardo-Finmeccanica Distributor, we are delighted to have sold the AW109SP to SaxonAir with a comprehensive support package that also includes full maintenance coverage for years to come. We are sure that SaxonAir and its clients will appreciate the outstanding capabilities that has made this helicopter the benchmark for VIP and charter operations.”

The order was announced at the Leonardo-Finmeccanica stand during EBACE in Geneva with representatives from SaxonAir, Sloane Helicopters and Leonardo-Finmeccanica were all present at the signing.
