Leonardo announced the upcoming delivery of five helicopters to Bashundhara Airways of Bangladesh, comprising three AW109 Trekkers and two AW119Kx.

The helicopters will be used for Emergency services, utility, law-enforcement, surveillance, VIP, corporate & passenger transport applications and are all scheduled to be delivered before the end of 2018.

Furthermore, Bashundhara Airways has been appointed exclusive distributor of Leonardo civil helicopters in Bangladesh and will establish a Service Centre for the Country, thus beginning a fruitful collaboration.

Leonardo already has an established presence in Bangladesh with government customers operating helicopters – including twin-engine AW139s with the Bangladesh Air Force and AW109Mss with the Navy – and other defence and security systems.

Bashundhara Airways is working with the Bangaldesh government to establish the first private heliport in the heart of Dhaka.
