Leonardo grows in Indonesia with new orders and deliveries of helicopters
  • Two AW169 for corporate transport ordered
  • Upcoming deliveries for offshore, firefighting and medevac roles further expand Leonardo presence in the country
  • Leonardo helicopter fleet in Indonesia doubled in the last three years
Indonesia confirms to be a high-growth market for Leonardo with a brand-new order by an undisclosed Indonesian customer for two light intermediate AW169s for corporate transport roles. The helicopters, marking the type entrance in the market, are planned to be delivered by the end of 2018.
Additionally, thanks to the upcoming deliveries of one additional AW139 to be operated by Travira for offshore operations and two AW119Kx for firefighting and medevac to NUH, Leonardo further expands its presence in the Country with a fleet growth of 100% in the last 3 years. 
These new orders and deliveries add up to an existing fleet of various models flying for a large number of missions, thus demonstrating the flexibility of the Leonardo helicopters portfolio. The fleet in service in the Country includes the intermediate AW139 operated by BASARNAS for SAR missions, a number of the same model in offshore operations and a mix of single and light twin helicopters operating for passenger transport.
Furthermore, Leonardo is present in the country with several government and military programmes including defence systems for the Indonesian Navy and space surveillance programmes.
