Leonardo Signs Deal With Bristow For Up To 20 Choppers

Italian firm Leonardo has inked a framework agreement with USA’s Bristow Group for up to 20 helicopters. The deal comprises a firm order for 10 AW189 choppers plus 10 options. This contract will support Bristow’s fleet expansion plan between 2025 and 2028. Bristow currently operates 21 AW189 helicopters worldwide, with another five due for delivery by the end of 2024.

Leonardo and Bristow have been doing business for over 28 years, with the latter purchasing various aircraft types, including the AW119 single engine, AW109 light twin, AW139 intermediate twin, and AW189 super medium. All put together, Bristow’s fleet of Leonardo choppers will shoot to nearly 110 units with the arrival of the additional 10 AW189s. In 2022, the duo entered a 10-year global service agreement for Bristow’s offshore fleet, covering the AW139 and AW189 units across the globe.
