Pakistan will introduce into service an undisclosed number of additional Leonardo AW139 intermediate twin-engine helicopters, Leonardo said. The aircraft will be used to perform utility, passenger transport and emergency medical service operations. The helicopters will be delivered in early 2019.
This latest fleet expansion is a step toward the completion of a fleet renewal program spread over several batches. Leonardo is also delivering logistic support and training services for the fleet of AW139s in Pakistan.
A number of AW139s are already in service in Pakistan, with several operated by the Pakistan government for emergency medical, search and rescue, relief and transport duties.
