Bergen Airport, Flesland in Bergen, Norway served as the base for Offshore Helicopters A/S, an offshore and scheduled helicopter carrier. Politicians and oil firms both wished for a rival to the Helikopter Service to be established, but Offshore Helicopters struggled to land large contracts.
Their primary business was a joint venture to fly to Statfjord under a contract with Helikopter Service. In order to unite the fleets, Offshore Helicopters was forced to sell its Pumas and purchase two Sikorsky S-61N helicopters and two Bell 212 helicopters, requiring substantial coordination with the larger company.
The Global Offshore helicopter market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Two AW139s will operate offshore transport missions in Brazil because of a contract that OMNI Helicopters International (OHI) has established. To service the global oil industry, nearly 25 aircraft will fly offshore transport missions for a number of operators.
The AW139’s global fleet expanded as a result of new orders from the Middle East, Brazil, Thailand, Indonesia, and Germany, demonstrating the platform’s unrivalled competitiveness for oil and gas operations on a global scale.
In addition, the AW169 has demonstrated time and time again that it is the aircraft of choice in its class for offshore cargo and wind farm support in both Europe and Asia. Abu Dhabi Aviation (ADA), one of the operators making orders for Leonardo offshore-configured helicopters, increased the size of its AW139 offshore fleet with a purchase of six additional helicopters.SFS Aviation, a renowned offshore helicopter service provider for oil and gas firms in Thailand, placed an order for two more AW139s.
These planes will bring the user’s fleet to a total of seven AW139s, and they are anticipated to be delivered this year. A contract for an extra AW139 offshore was signed by Travira Air in Indonesia; delivery of the aircraft is anticipated.
A second order for two more Leonardo helicopters, including an AW139 and an AW169, has been placed by HeliService international GmbH (HeliService) in Germany to expand its selection of offshore transport services. India has also provided confirmation of the AW169’s ability to support offshore activities. In order to enhance transportation activities in the energy sector, Global Vectra Helicorp Limited (GVHL) has ordered two AW169s.
