Our Bureau - : Feb 29, 2024 - : 11:36 am

LCI Aviation (LCI) and Airbus Helicopters announced a new Flight Path partnership which will address the long-term capacity, sustainability, and financing requirements of the industry on Thursday (Feb. 28).

The new partnership will see both companies leveraging their combined knowledge, experience, and analytical capabilities to identify the infrastructure and financial innovations that will address this demand.

“This strategic partnership between LCI and Airbus signals our collective commitment to deliver long-term, sustainable capacity solutions to the market,” said Jaspal Jandu, CEO of LCI. “The combination of Airbus’ long-standing expertise in business development, forecasting, and planning, with LCI’s track record in leasing, investing, and financial innovation, will enable us to sustainably address the multibillion-dollar requirements of the market.”

“LCI and Airbus have worked together in close cooperation for almost two decades, culminating most recently in the delivery commitments for seven next-generation helicopters,” said Bruno Even, CEO of Airbus Helicopters. “This new partnership is a natural elevation of this relationship and one that reflects our shared capabilities.”

Flight Path expands on a 20-year partnership, marked by a recent collaboration on the advanced air mobility ecosystems around the CityAirbus Next Gen program. Future plans involve investing in additional helicopter units, types, and sustainable technologies.

LCI currently operates over 50 Airbus helicopters across 10 countries for various missions. The initial phase of Flight Path involves receiving seven latest-generation Airbus helicopters by 2025. The company also ordered five new Airbus H145 helicopters, in partnership with Sumitomo Mitsui Finance and Leasing Company, which will be deployed in Oceania. The first two aircraft will be delivered by March 2024. Furthermore, two H175 helicopters will also be delivered and operated in South America.
