Shenzhen Eastern General Aviation Company (Shenzhen Eastern GAC) will be the launch customer for the VIP version of the H160 in China, following an agreement signed at the Paris Air Show.

The ACH160 will be used for mainly private and business aviation missions around the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area of China.

The aircraft will join Shenzhen Eastern GAC’s existing fleet of 12 aircraft, including three H135s.

Zhao Qi, chairman of Shenzhen Eastern GAC, said: ‘The ACH160 is the natural next addition to our Airbus fleet of H135s as we look to bolster our private and business aviation presence in the Greater Bay Area and explore new opportunities targeting the private aviation market for which we already have a well-developed infrastructure in place.’

The ACH helicopter range offers premium-design completion options and bespoke solutions for Airbus Helicopter light and medium models.

The H160 is set to enter into service in 2020.
