Spanish scheduled passenger route operator Hélity has added a fourth AW139 to their fleet since starting operations in 2017. The announcement was made by CEO Antonio Barranco, speaking at Fitur – Feria Internacional del Turismo (International Tourism Fair) that was held in Madrid from 19-23 January.

The specific aircraft is one of the earliest examples, it’s technically an AB139 built prior to Bell’s decision to leave Leonardo (then AgustaWestland) to run the program alone.

Helity operates routes between Malaga, Algeciras and Ceuta, with an average of 6 return flights a day on the Algeciras-Ceuta route, and 5 return flights a day between Malaga and Ceuta. The expansion of the operator’s route network was being planned pre-pandemic, and is only now gradually being evident. New schedules are expected to Gibraltar as well as linking Algeciras to Tangier.

Barranco confirmed the continuation of a bonus pricing structure for non-residents to travel to Ceuta at half price, subject to meeting a few requirements. In particular, the visitor cannot stay in Ceuta for more than seven days, although this is under review to extend it to fifteen days due to demand. At present around 1,200 non-residents are traveling to Ceuta per month using Hélity.
