Sept. 16, 2020: Helicopter Service Company (HSC) and Polar Airlines signed a service contract for Ansat helicopters at the International Helicopter Industry Exhibition HeliRussia 2020.
The contract is the first one signed in the new RH-Support format of after-sales services provided by HSC. The format provides a package of services in accordance with the specific requirements of the customer, the specifics of its air fleet and operating conditions.
“Last year, during the MAKS air show, we signed a supply contract with Polar Airlines for seven Ansat helicopters,” said said Andrey Boginsky, the Director General of Russian Helicopters. “Today’s agreement is a logical continuation of this cooperation. The service contract will allow us to quickly resolve issues arising during operation and ensure constant readiness, efficiency and regularity of flights for rescue operations.”
“The main task of helicopter maintenance services is to maximize customer satisfaction, optimizing their financial and operational efficiency, increase helicopter performance and minimize their downtime,” said Ivan Serov, the Managing Director of HSC. “Since Ansat helicopters will be used for air medical services, we offered our partners an adapted after-sales service scheme with rates based on flight hours and increase in the real flight readiness of helicopters.”
During the MAKS-2019 air show, Russian Helicopters and Polar Airlines signed a contract for supplying seven modernized Ansat helicopters starting from 2021. Based on recommendations of Polar Airlines, Russian Helicopters developed the new design of the helicopter which provides for keeping a machine outside a hangar, a longer flight range, an ice protection system and the possibility of performing instrument flights.
