Airbus Helicopters has secured an ACH160 order from an undisclosed new customer in the Philippines, launching this new model in the Southeast Asia and Pacific region.
It will be used for private and business flights within the Philippines archipelago.
This aircraft will feature the ACH160 Exclusive version highlighting two wide hinged doors and electrical footsteps combined with a bespoke cabin, welcoming up to eight passengers in an elegant and refined handcrafted interior for a truly business-jet like experience.
Equipped with Blue Edge blades and a new canted Fenestron rotor, the ACH160 sets a new benchmark in corporate transportation with a blend of innovative technology, speed, comfort and style.
As part of the contract, the ACH160 will be backed by HCare First – the first such premium support agreement in the region, catering to the specific needs of operators requiring worry-free aircraft availability.
“Launching the ACH160 in Southeast Asia with a new Philippine customer underlines the global attractiveness of our corporate helicopters offering to meet the evolving travelling needs of our customers,” said Frederic Lemos, Head of Airbus Corporate Helicopters (ACH). “We are equally excited to see our ACH products gaining good success in the growing Philippine private travel market.”
