PRESS RELEASE – 20 February 2017

Leonardo: Pakistan expands its AW139 fleet with new orders.

  • Additional aircraft for utility and transport purposes with deliveries starting in mid-2017
  • AW139 confirmed as preferred choice for a number of military and government customers around the world
  • Bestselling helicopter with over 970 aircraft sold to more than 240 customers in over 70
    nations, and over 830 of the type in service to date

Rome, 20 February 2017 – Leonardo announced today that the Pakistan Government has placed
orders for an undisclosed number of additional AgustaWestland AW139 intermediate twin engine
helicopters. The aircraft will be used to perform utility and transport operations across the nation. Deliveries are expected to start in mid-2017.
This latest purchase further expands the presence and success of the AW139 and other Leonardo models in Pakistan and confirms the AW139 as the preferred new generation helicopter choice for replacement of older types currently in service. The AW139 is the perfect fit to Pakistan’s operational environment, delivering outstanding capabilities with hot and high performance unmatched by any other existing helicopter type in the same class. The new helicopters will add to the fleet of AW139 previously ordered to carry out search and rescue (SAR) and emergency
medical service (EMS) duties in the country.
