Niagara Helicopters has placed an order for six H130s, confirming a full fleet renewal.

Each year, the Canada-based company welcomes more than 100,000 customers from all over the world, providing a nine minute, 27 kilometre sightseeing tour over Niagara Falls.

“In order to continue to deliver a first-class visitor experience, we felt it was time to upgrade our aircraft,” says COO Denis Pilon. “After nearly 10 years of working with Airbus Helicopters, we are confident that the H130 continues to be the ideal aircraft for our operation. We are pleased to be working with the Airbus team again and we look forward to many more years of cooperation and collaboration.”

“We’re honoured that Niagara Helicopters has once again put its trust in Airbus as it works to deliver exceptional experiences for visitors to the Niagara region,” adds Dwayne Charette, president and COO of Airbus Helicopters in Canada. “It is an esteemed partner, and we are delighted it has chosen Airbus as its exclusive helicopter provider since 2015.”

The H130 has a wide, unobstructed cabin that accommodates the pilot and up to seven passengers, providing high visibility through a large wraparound windscreen and wide windows. It also has panoramic seating, active vibration control system and improved air conditioning.
