Airbus Helicopters expands Chile services

25th November 2016 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Airbus Helicopters is investing in its facilities in Chile, with its existing customer service centre at Santiago's Tobalaba aerodrome set to move to a new, larger site within the airport, the company announced on 22 November.

The new facility will have 10,000 square meters of floor space, doubling Airbus Helicopters’ customer service capacity, and increasing pilot training activities and support for the regional fleet of more than 300 helicopters. 

Chile is an important market for Airbus Helicopters, with customers including the Chilean Navy Aviation, whose Dauphin fleet logs around 2,000 flight hours each year supporting naval and maritime operations, including natural disaster response.

The company is also currently celebrating its 15th anniversary in the country.

Alexandre Ceccacci, Airbus Helicopters’ CEO in Chile, said: ‘We are the only helicopter manufacturer with its own infrastructure in the country built to meet its customers' needs. 

‘This anniversary celebration and the investments that have just been announced are a wager on the future. We are also reaffirming our confidence in the regional market where we are going to continue to grow over the next decades.'
