Airbus Helicopters wraps up the 2024 edition of Heli-Expo with 155 commitments, including 40 firm orders, from customers worldwide for a variety of its multi-mission helicopters.

Major highlights included a historic contract with THC for up to 120 helicopters of various types, with a firm order for 8 H125s and 10 H145s as part of the agreement.

Airbus Helicopters continued to position itself as the leader on the helicopter emergency medical services market with the H145 for THC and up to 10 H145s for DRF Luftrettung. U.S. operator HealthNet Aeromedical Services added four H135s to its all-Airbus fleet.

The Canadian tour operator Niagara Helicopters added six H130s and Bristow placed an order for up to 15 H135s for the growing energy market.

Airbus Helicopters and LCI announced two partnerships strengthening their long-standing relationship, one to explore the advanced air mobility (AAM) market and the other to address long-term capacity, sustainability and financing requirements of the industry.

Bruno Even, Airbus Helicopters CEO said: “We thank our customers for placing their trust in our teams and our products and services with 155 commitments and 40 firm orders announced at this year’s Heli-Expo.

“It is a unique opportunity in the year to meet and exchange with customers and industry players.

“In 2023, our global fleet achieved 3 million flight hours so customer feedback is essential and it drives the continuous improvement of our solutions to enhance their critical, often life-saving, missions,” .
