Atlantic Airways, the national airline of the Faroe Islands, has signed a contract with AgustaWestland for two AW139 intermediate twin helicopters that will replace its existing two Bell 412s. The aircraft will be used to perform search and rescue (SAR) missions and scheduled passenger transportation within the Faroe Islands. The helicopters are expected to be delivered late 2015 and in spring 2016 respectively. This contract marks AgustaWestland’s first sale to the Faroe Islands, and builds upon an already-strong presence of AW139s in Northern Europe.
