The Royal Thai Army is to increase its fleet of AgustaWestland AW139 utility helicopters to 10 units, after awarding the manufacturer a follow-on order for eight of the intermediate twins.

Deliveries of the rotorcraft will be completed before the end of 2016, the European company announced during the Helitech exhibition in London.

Flightglobal's Fleets Analyzer database records Thailand's army as already operating two Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6C-67-powered AW139s. These were delivered to the service in February 2014, under a first order signed in October 2012.
