One more step to help strengthen Airbus Helicopters local footprint in Italy has been made - the acquisition of its distributor and 50-year partner Aersud Elicotteri. The company will now fully integrate Airbus Helicopters’ global network of customer centers. 

Headquartered in the North of Italy, near the city of Verona, Aersud has played a key role in the development of the country’s helicopter market. It has successfully increased Airbus Helicopters’ market share in Italy, particularly in mission segments such as aerial work, business aviation and emergency medical services, thanks to the Airbus single-engine H125 and twin-engine H145 helicopters that are particularly suited to the country’s mountainous conditions.

“With over 250 helicopters in service and more than 90 operators in the country, Italy is an important market for Airbus Helicopters, and we are here to stay” said Bruno Even, Airbus Helicopters CEO. “I would like to thank Aersud Elicotteri which has played a key role in increasing the fleet of Airbus helicopters in Italy over the last 50 years. We are fully committed to providing our local customers with the best-in-class service and support they expect, and to do so while building on the very successful relationship that Aersud Elicotteri has developed with them over the years. I would also like to warmly welcome all of our new colleagues to the Airbus team”.

“Aersud Elicotteri has been an extraordinary adventure on a personal and professional level for two generations of my family and I am very proud of our contribution to the Italian aerospace industry”, said Riccardo Aichner, President of Aersud Elicotteri. “Throughout the years, the people at Aersud Elicotteri have been led by their passion for aviation, putting their expertise and dedication at the service of our customers. I am sure that these same principles will guide the new period we are now starting, under the name of Airbus”.
