Airbus Helicopters and the Romanian Ministry of Interior have signed a contract for the purchase of three H135 helicopters and associated support and services for air medical services and search and rescue missions in the country

This latest deal follows the four-year framework agreement signed at the end of July that foresees the procurement of up to 10 H135s.

Georges Durdilly, Head of Airbus Helicopters in Romania, commented: “Airbus has been an active player in Romania for almost 50 years and we are proud that the Ministry of Interior has selected the H135 for such critical missions. As a market leader with more than 600 helicopters in service for air medical service missions worldwide, I have no doubt that it will be a valuable life-saving asset to the country.”
