Lease Corporation International (LCI) has delivered a new AW169 helicopter to Elitaliana in Italy, the company announced on 9 July.

The helicopter is fully equipped for emergency medical services (EMS) operations and enters service with Elitaliana on a long-term operating lease from LCI. It will join two other AW169s delivered by LCI to Elitaliana in 2016 and 2017, operating from Elitaliana’s EMS bases in Rome and the Lazio region.

Crispin Maunder, executive chairman of LCI, said: ‘This delivery to Elitaliana expands LCI’s presence in the Italian EMS market and reinforces our long-held strategy of developing a balanced and diverse portfolio, with the majority of our lease portfolio being concentrated on time-critical markets.’

Elitaliana provides services in a range of sectors including EMS, offshore helicopter transport, environmental monitoring, forest firefighting and SAR.
