LCI signs agreement for six H-175 helicopters
Valued at over USD125 million.
LCI, a reference aviation company and a subsidiary of the Libra Group, has today announced an order for up to six H-175 super-medium helicopters from Airbus, valued at over USD 125 million.
The order is for two confirmed aircraft with the first unit set to be delivered to LCI in late 2023. The agreement provides for a further four options, and builds on LCI’s previous order for new H-175s.
Its fleet currently includes around 50 Airbus helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. They are deployed by 14 operators in 10 countries across the globe on a range of missions (Emergency Medical Services, Search and Rescue and off-shore wind).
The H-175 first entered service in 2015. It is a versatile, super-medium aircraft that can operate in a range of different configurations.
LCI has consistently grown in scale and value as it has diversified over time. The lessor’s highly experienced management team has built strong relationships with aircraft and engine manufacturers, customers, and leading financial institutions. Since its inception in 2004, it has undertaken in excess of USD 8 billion of transactions in the aviation markets.
