LCI has placed two Leonardo AW139 helicopters on long-term operating leases with its newest customer, Heligo Charters Pvt. Ltd. The state-of-the-art aircraft were recently delivered to Heligo’s base at Juhu Airport in Mumbai, from where they will provide crew transfer services for India’s largest energy company, ONGC. 

Nigel Leishman, Executive Vice President & Global Head of Marketing at LCI, said: “Heligo is one of India’s foremost providers of onshore and offshore helicopter services, and we are delighted to support their operations.

“India and the wider Asia-Pacific region is a diverse and fast-growing market for helicopter leasing which today accounts for around a third of our global aircraft placements. We see huge potential for further long-term growth in the region across a range of operating sectors.”

Captain Padmanabhan, CEO at Heligo, said: “LCI’s expert team went above and beyond to meet our requirements swiftly and effectively, providing invaluable technical assistance. We’re looking forward to a productive, long-term partnership.”  

LCI’s rotorcraft fleet is focused on the latest technology medium and super medium helicopters manufactured by leading helicopter OEMs including Leonardo, Airbus Helicopters and Sikorsky. These are in operation across four continents in multiple sectors including emergency medical services, offshore wind, search and rescue, maritime pilot transfer and energy sector transportation.

The lessor has consistently grown in scale and value as it has diversified over time. LCI’s highly experienced management team has built strong relationships with manufacturers, customers and leading financial institutions, and has undertaken in excess of US$8 billion of transactions in the fixed-wing and helicopter markets since LCI’s inception in 2004.
