Lisbon, Portugal, November 16th 2023 – Lisbon-based Omni Helicopters International (OHI), Latin America’s largest provider of air mobility and delivery solutions, announced that it has secured seven (7) additional Super Medium helicopters for delivery in 2023 & 2024 to meet new customer demands, citing sustainability and product reliability benefits.
OHI’s Group Chief Operating Officer, Duncan Moore said “We decided to step up our position in the Super Medium helicopter class, both to accelerate delivery on our sustainability commitments and to provide increasingly reliable options to our customers. We will continue to explore all aircraft options to ensure that our customers can rely on us for capacity to meet their demanding missions”.
OHI’s Chief Sustainability Officer, Emin Aleskerov added “We’re delighted to be growing the Super Medium fleet segment as these helicopters offer superior CO2 efficiency per seat and optimized operating cost versus the vast majority of other types.”
These new helicopters enable OHI to create optionality for its customers, whilst enhancing the company’s Airbus H175 and Leonardo AW189 fleets.
Roberto Coimbra, CEO of Omni Táxi Aéreo added “This is a significant milestone that reinforces our leadership in the South American offshore transport market. These state-of-the-art aircraft allow us to build on our world-class service, with unparalleled reach and efficiency, aligned with the most demanding IOGP-690 standards.”
