AgustaWestland is pleased to announce that London Air Services has signed a contract for a third AW139 helicopter having already ordered two AW139s, the first of which was delivered in early 2006. The additional VIP configured helicopters will complement their current air charter fleet that utilizes various business jets and their first AW139.
The second AW139 for London Air Services is being assembled in Italy while the third Helicopter will be produced at AgustaWestland's all new, high tech production facility located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. London Air Services Flight Crews and Maintenance Technicians will receive training at AgustaWestland's Philadelphia facility using a new, state-of-the-art Cockpit Procedures Trainer and AW139 Flight Simulator that is certified to FAA Level 'D' standards.

London Air Services is Canada's premier provider of private, customized business travel for executives. Serving their client's needs, London Air Services offers both economical and efficient air charter solutions that have made them an industry leader in Canada.

'London Air Services is a very special customer of AgustaWestland,' said Robert Cleland, AgustaWestland Philadelphia Director of Sales and Marketing. 'They were our launch customer for the AW139 in Canada and as a result a very close relationship has developed.'

'Adding the AW139 to our fleet of aircraft last year proved very beneficial to us in our goal of providing both luxury and speed of travel to our clients,' said Wynne Powell, President of London Air Services. 'These new additions to our fleet are just going to strengthen our position further in Canada's fast-growing charter air travel industry.'

AgustaWestland Philadelphia is responsibility for the sales, assembly, customization and support of the A109 Power, Grand, AW139 and AW119 Ke product lines throughout the Americas.
