LCI takes off with Bond offshore helicopters

Posted 1 May 2013 · Add Comment

Lease Corporation International's (LCI) helicopter division took off this week with its first delivery of a new AW139 helicopter to Bond Offshore Helicopters (Bond) in Aberdeen, Scotland.

The delivery follows the agreement of a long-term lease between LCI and Bond’s parent company Avincis Group – a leading global provider of mission critical services.

The 15-seat, twin-engined helicopter will be operated by Bond to provide offshore crew change support for the BW Offshore (UK) floating production storage and offtake vessel at the Athena field. 

BW Offshore maintains production at the field on behalf of Ithaca Energy.

The delivery marks the first aircraft service entry for LCI’s new helicopter division, which was launched in 2012 with a $400 million order for a mixed fleet of AgustaWestland AW139, AW169 and AW189 helicopters.
