Niagara Helicopters, a tourism company based in Niagara Falls, Ontario, has confirmed a full fleet renewal by ordering six H130 helicopters. The company, which annually serves over 100,000 customers worldwide with sightseeing tours over Niagara Falls, aims to enhance its visitor experience through aircraft upgrades.

“In order to continue to deliver a first-class visitor experience, we felt it was time to upgrade our aircraft,” says Denis Pilon, Chief Operating Officer for Niagara Helicopters. “After nearly 10 years of working with Airbus Helicopters, we are confident that the H130 continues to be the ideal aircraft for our operation. We are pleased to be working with the Airbus team again. We look forward to many more years of cooperation and collaboration.”

“We’re honoured that Niagara Helicopters has once again put their trust in Airbus, as they work to deliver exceptional experiences for visitors to the Niagara region,” says Dwayne Charette, President, and COO of Airbus Helicopters in Canada. “They are an esteemed partner and we are delighted they have chosen Airbus as their exclusive helicopter provider since 2015.”

The H130 features a spacious cabin accommodating up to seven passengers alongside the pilot, providing exceptional visibility and comfort, making it a preferred choice for many sightseeing services, charter operators, and emergency medical services.

As a member of the Ecureuil family of helicopters, the H130 has amassed over 40 million flight hours, representing 47% of the Airbus-built in-service helicopter fleet worldwide.
