Arrow Aircraft, a Delhi-based non-scheduled operator, has received its first Airbus H125 helicopter. The aircraft taken on lease from Heliswiss Iberica will soon start operations in the high altitude areas of north India for heli-pilgrimage passenger transport missions.
“Arrow Aircraft is pleased to take delivery of its first H125 helicopter. We selected the H125, as it is the most versatile and cost effective helicopter in its category. With several multirole configurations, we are confident that the helicopter will truly be an advantage for us to continue developing our aerial missions. We look forward to a long term relationship with Airbus and Heliswiss Iberica,” says CEO Shailendra Singh.
The H125 is a common sight at the pilgrimage areas in India. It is also being used to develop new helicopter market segments in the country, mainly geophysical surveys, power grid maintenance and emergency medical services, among others. The optimised cabin of the H125 features a flat floor that can be easily and quickly reconfigured for various mission types.
“Heliswiss Iberica is proud to support Arrow Aircraft in its new project. Collaborating with such a well-established operator in India gives us more presence in one of our key markets, where we expect to keep growing during the following years. Whatever the mission, the H125 is a multi-role aircraft that can easily adapt to our customer's needs,” says Marc Bisbal, sales and leasing manager at Heliswiss Iberica, S.A.
“Airbus has a range of helicopters designed to meet and exceed each mission requirement. With the selection of the H125, Arrow Aviation will benefit from the capabilities of a helicopter that has become a benchmark in its category. It is recognised for its excellent performance in the most extreme weather and geographical conditions with low operating costs,” says Ashish Saraf, head of Airbus Helicopters, Airbus India and south Asia.
