Airbus Helicopters will deliver an ACH160 helicopter to an undisclosed new customer in the Philippines, marking the first sale of this model in the Southeast Asia and Pacific region.

The helicopter will be used for private and business flights within the Philippines archipelago. The aircraft will be delivered in the ACH160 Exclusive version, with two wide hinged doors and electrical footsteps combined with a bespoke cabin capable of carrying up to eight passenger.

As part of the contract, the ACH160 will be backed by HCare First – the first support agreement signed in the region.

Frederic Lemos, head of Airbus Corporate Helicopters, said: ‘Launching the ACH160 in Southeast Asia with a new Philippine customer underlines the global attractiveness of our corporate helicopters offering to meet the evolving travelling needs of our customers. We are equally excited to see our ACH products gaining good success in the growing Philippine private travel market.’
