Two H225 helicopters for South Korean SAR
Airbus Helicopters has received a contract to supply two additional H225 helicopters to South Korea’s National 119 Rescue Headquarters, the company announced on 22 November.
The National 119 Rescue Headquarters - the country's primary provider of firefighting and rescue services - currently operates an all-Airbus helicopter fleet, comprising two AS365 N2s and two H225s. This new purchase will bring its fleet to six helicopters by the end of 2019.
The agency will use the two new helicopters for search and rescue missions, and will have the flexibility to reconfigure them to accommodate fire-fighting and emergency medical services equipment.
Marie-Agnes Veve, head of North Asia of Airbus Helicopters, said: ‘The National 119 Rescue Headquarters has been operating Airbus helicopters for over 20 years and we are happy to see how our helicopters have continued to play a vital role in the agency's mandate to protect and save lives.
‘The addition of the two H225 to the agency’s fleet illustrates our customer’s confidence in our products and their performance. Given its versatility and endurance in all-weather condition, we know the H225 will continue to be a capable workhorse for the agency’s missions.’
