SB Havacılık A.Ş. (SBAIR) is Airbus Helicopters’ new distributor and service center in Turkey. The manufacture said SBAIR, based in Istanbul, would represent the company in Turkey and promote its civil product line.

“We are pleased that we have found an experienced partner in Turkey, who will use his local expertise to serve our current and future customers in the best way possible,” said Mickaël Peru, Airbus Helicopters’ head of sales for Eastern EU and CIS, “thus bringing a new dynamic in our approach to the market, particularly the proximity of support and services to our customers.”


SBAIR was established last year by members of Bayegan Group and Swan Aviation.

Airbus said SBAIR will act as a distributor and provide after-sales services in the areas of maintenance, logistics support and training support.
