CMIG Leasing (previously known as CMIFL) and Airbus Helicopters have signed an agreement to deepen their cooperation in civil helicopter operations including navigational operation and low-altitude air tourism.
Both parties will also work towards expanding this cooperation to the public services segment, including police aviation, emergency medical services (EMS), and forest firefighting.
To accomplish such objectives, CMIG Leasing signed a letter of intent for up to two pre-owned H225 helicopters to be used in firefighting missions.
CMIG Leasing is following the terms and conditions of the existing framework agreement announced at China Helicopter Exposition in 2015, which covers a total of 100 Ecureuil family helicopters. To date, 20 Ecureuil helicopters from this agreement have already been delivered.
“We’re delighted to further strengthen our strategic partnership and extend the cooperation with CMIG Leasing for the civil helicopter industry in China,” said Marie-Agnes Veve, General Manager of Airbus Helicopters China. “Airbus Helicopters has been present in China for 50 years, as the first Alouette III helicopter entered into the country in 1967. We are committed to the continued development of China’s helicopters industry and by working with such great partners, we can all achieve more success together.”
CMIG Leasing is one of the most influential helicopter leasing companies in China, as well as a strategic partner of Airbus Helicopters.
At the last China Airshow in 2016, CMIG Leasing signed a LOI for the new generation, twin-engine H160 helicopter, making them the launch customer in China.
