AgustaWestland Helicopters
: 17 April, 2008  (Application Story)
AgustaWestland has announced that Atlantic Airways Ltd of the Faroe Islands has taken delivery of an AW139 medium twin turbine engine helicopter during an official ceremony held at AgustaWestland’s Vergiate plant. The helicopter is configured for 12 or 15 seat layouts for both public passenger transport and offshore passenger transport operations.
The delivery to Atlantic Airways continues the rapidly growing AW139 customer base in Europe with aircraft now in operation in Ireland, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Luxembourg, Estonia, Finland and Turkey.

The AW139 is a new generation medium twin-turbine Helicopter setting new standards against which all new medium twin will be measured. Designed with inherent multi-role capability and flexibility of operation, the AW139 is capable of carrying up to 15 passengers or six litters with two medical attendants or up to four litters and four medical attendants at the highest speed, in the most spacious cabin and with the best power reserve of any other Helicopter in the medium twin-engine class. The AW139 has quickly become the aircraft of choice for offshore support operations offering unparalleled features in its class in terms of performance, capacity and safety which will dramatically enhance Atlantic Airways’ operations. The AW139 is ideally suited for the offshore role, with its large cabin and baggage compartments, offering ease of access and egress by its large sliding doors. Remarkable space on board and modular equipment solutions, allow an easy and quick conversion between various configurations.

In addition to offshore transport, the AW139 can be used for a number of other applications including EMS/SAR, executive/VIP transport, law enforcement, utility and government roles. The Helicopter has achieved a great success becoming the best selling medium twin in the world marketplace. Over 90 different customers in more than 30 countries have ordered over 330 helicopters.

As the national airline of the Faroe Islands established in 1987, Atlantic Airways is based at Vagar Airport and operates domestic as well as international scheduled and charter services through its mixed fixed/rotary-winged aircraft fleet. Scheduled transport services link the Faroe Islands to various destinations in Northern Europe including major cities in Iceland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and the UK. Additionally, Atlantic Airways undertakes other missions including search and rescue.
