LCI to expand helicopter fleet with further AgustaWestland orders
LCI, the aviation leasing arm of The Libra Group, has committed to expand its helicopter fleet with firm orders for a further 11 AgustaWestland aircraft valued at US$125m (€110m). The new aircraft, which are converted from options held by the helicopter lessor, are made up of a mix of AW139, AW169 and AW189 aircraft. The aircraft will be delivered between 2015 and 2016, and take LCI’s total fleet to approaching 90 aircraft. LCI’s helicopters are already in service supporting deep sea oil and gas production, along with aero-medical transport and search & rescue roles.
