Marking its 15th anniversary of operations, ABS Jets has added a Mercedes-Benz style VIP Airbus H145 to its fleet, so entering rotary wing operations for the first time.

In 2019 the company has focused on growth, expanding its fleet with a brand new Gulfstream G650 and breaking new ground by gaining an AOC for helicopters.

The Airbus H145 helicopter offers in-flight wi-fi connectivity, higher performance, increased flight safety and an improved exterior design over the former EC145. The style is tailored to high-end private and corporate operations and offers a modular interior for cabin arrangement flexibility, refinement, comfort and quality.

“Expanding our service portfolio with helicopter operations has been one of our long-term ambitions, although it was planned for a future time. I am proud that our strong and dedicated team has already managed to establish this in our portfolio this year in conjunction with the 15th anniversary of the company. We are excited about this new chapter at ABS Jets and see it as a great opportunity to become even more versatile for our customers,” says COO and accountable manager Jan Králík.

As well as achieving an AOC for helicopters, ABS Jets' MRO has received EASA Part 145 approval to perform maintenance on the Airbus H145.

The company will continue providing its comprehensive range of business aviation services that specialise in 24/7 ultra-long haul operations with worldwide coverage.
