Business buyer brings a brace of ACH160s to India
A new order in India, the first for any helicopter in the H160 range in the region, reinforces Airbus Corporate Helicopters' commitment to the Indian market, where already more than 120 Airbus helicopters are flying.
The technology in the ACH160 is cutting edge.

An Indian customer has placed an order with Airbus Corporate Helicopters for two ACH160s. It is the first sale of this type in the region.

The helicopters will be delivered with the ACH160 Exclusive configuration for business use by the customer, who is an experienced helicopter operator. Under the terms of the contract, Airbus Corporate Helicopters will provide a turnkey solution to ensure smooth entry into service of both the helicopters.

Airbus Helicopters EVP Olivier Michalon comments: “We are proud to announce this milestone contract for two ACH160 helicopters for our Indian customer. We thank them for their pioneering vision, and I am confident that the entry into service of this helicopter will set a new benchmark for helicopter operations in India, especially for private aviation and premium charters.”

Airbus Helicopters is a contributor to the Indian government's 'Aatmanirbhar Bharat' mission. “This new order, the first in India for any helicopter in the H160 range, further reinforces our commitment to the Indian market where already more than 120 Airbus Helicopters are flying,” adds Michalon.

The ACH160 provides 20 per cent greater volume per passenger compared to previous generation medium twin helicopters and has 35 per cent larger windows than its competitors, resulting in the brightest cabin in its class.

The ACH160's advanced air conditioning technology allows precise temperature control and optimal cabin air quality with highly efficient air exchange. In the ACH160 Exclusive version, mood lighting contributes to reduced fatigue.
