First five-bladed H145 touches down in the Middle East
Al-Sharqiya Aviation is the only commercial helicopter service in the Sultanate of Oman, and it has just taken delivery of the first five-bladed H145 in the Middle East which will be used for EMS.
Airbus says it currently has more than 1,515 H145 family helicopters in service around the world, logging a total of more than six million flight hours.

Al-Sharqiya Aviation has taken delivery of the first five-bladed H145 in the Middle East from Airbus Helicopters, as first reported back in July 2021, adding to the H125 it has already. The only commercial helicopter service in Oman will operate it for emergency medical services across the country. With the new helicopter, Al-Sharqiya will expand its service offering, also providing onshore and offshore passenger transport.

“Al-Sharqiya Aviation is very proud to be the first operator of the five-bladed H145 variant in the Middle East. The on-time arrival of the helicopter was critical to deliver for our customers, and we thank Airbus and Milestone for their support,” says Tariq Al Barwani, CEO.

“We're honoured that the H145 will enter into service for EMS missions in Oman soon,” says Axel Humpert, head of the H145 programme at Airbus Helicopters. “Especially the excellent hot and high performance and the increased useful load the new five-bladed version offers make it the perfect choice for those missions in the Middle East.”

Airbus says it currently has more than 1,515 H145 family helicopters in service around the world, logging a total of more than six million flight hours. For EMS alone, there are more than 470 helicopters of the H145 family conducting air rescue missions worldwide.
