Bristow to Begin SAR Service in Nigeria

By Amy Kluber | June 22, 2016

Bristow Helicopters' Nigeria business unit established a new helicopter rescue and recovery service for that nation's oil and gas industry.

That service is expected to launch this August and will be based in southern Nigeria at Port Harcourt. It will use a Leonardo AW139, equipped for search and rescue missions with forward-looking infrared camera technology, a dual hoist and mission management capabilities.

Bristow said it plans to add service from Lagos once a second AW139 is ready by the end of this year.
