SINGAPORE -- Leonardo is expanding its share of the growing Bangladeshi helicopter market with the upcoming delivery of five helicopters to Bashundhara Airways, including three AW109 Trekkers and two AW119Kx helicopters.

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

Bashundhara Airways has been appointed exclusive distributor of Leonardo civil helicopters in Bangladesh and will establish a service center for the country. The appointment marks another step in Leonardo’s ongoing expansion of its customer support network around the world, establishing centers close to customers to provide quicker and better services.

Leonardo already has an established presence in Bangladesh with government customers operating helicopters - including twin-engine AW139s with the Bangladesh Air Force and AW109Ms with the Navy - and other defense and security systems.

Bashundhara Airways is part of Bashundhara Group, one of the largest conglomerates of Bangladesh. Bashundhara Airways is working with the Bangaldesh government to establish the first and only private heliport in the heart of Dhaka.

The AW109 Trekker is the latest addition to Leonardo’s helicopter portfolio and the company’s first light twin to offer skid landing gear. Nearly 300 AW119 helicopters have been ordered to date in almost 40 countries by over 120 customers.
