Malaysian offshore operator Weststar Aviation Services has taken delivery of the last three of the nine AgustaWestland AW139s it ordered, primarily for supporting offshore oil and gas operations in the country.  The three were delivered today to Kualan Lumpur’s Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah airport courtesy of an Antonov AN124 freighter.

Six AW139s will be based at Kertih, with the remaining three at Sultan Ismail Petra Airport in Pengkalan Chepa.  Weststar, reputedly the fourth biggest AW139 offshore  operator in the world, provides helicopter services to oil and gas companies including Esso Production Malaysia and Petronas Carigali, among others.

“We are sure the AW139 with its outstanding performance, comfort and safety, will prove to be extremely successful in the overall offshore market in the region,” said Syed Azman, who is looking to further expand its business into the regional offshore oil and gas operations.
