Italy-based helicopter operator Alidaunia has taken delivery of two new Leonardo AW169s from the joint venture leasing operation between LCI and Sumitomo Mitsui Finance and Leasing Co.

CEO Roberto Pucillo says: “LCI’s experience in providing aircraft and support for emergency medical services operations makes it a natural partner for Alidaunia. We look forward to a long and productive partnership between our two companies.”

The two aircraft will be based in Naples and Salerno on long term operating leases, from where Alidaunia will use them to deliver mission-critical and socially responsible EMS operations for the Campania region of Italy.

LCI executive chairman Crispin Maunder says: “Alidaunia is a highly experienced provider of helicopter services, and LCI is proud to be supporting its growing emergency medical services operation. With over half of our fleet deployed on mission critical operations, we have the technical and operational experience to help it deliver this vital service for the people of Campania.”
