Airbus Helicopters introduces to Australia and the Pacific region its premium private and business aviation helicopter brand Airbus Corporate Helicopters.
Melbourne-based operator Microflite is the launch customer. Microflite is due to take delivery of an ACH135 in March. The aircraft will complement its existing fleet for luxury charters in Australia.
“Microflite has been our customer since 2000, flying a wide range of our light single and twin helicopters. We are honoured by their decision to acquire a new ACH135 for their expandingfleet, becoming our launch operator for this region,” said Frederic Lemos, Head of ACH.
“ACH has made an excellent start since our global launch and is generating great enthusiasmin the private and business aviation community, increasing its market share steadily. It has been particularly pleasing to see the new ACH160 winning orders. I’m confident that we are going to experience the same kind of interest here in Australia and in the region.”
Building on its highly successful launch in Europe and mirroring sister brand Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ), ACH brings to the Pacific market a high-end and exclusive end-to-end ownership experience all the way from first enquiry and ordering, through in-service support, to enhanced resale opportunities.
