THC (The Helicopter Company) and Leonardo are further reinforcing their collaboration in civil helicopter operations with the introduction of 16 AW139 intermediate twin-engine aircraft for emergency medical service (EMS) and corporate transport missions across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Deliveries will start this year and will be completed within the following three years. These aircraft add to THC’s existing AW139 fleet of seven helicopters. Six additional units may follow in the future expansion.
The Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF) established THC as part of its strategy to activate new sectors that meet the growing demands for commercial helicopters in Saudi Arabia. THC also supports the realisation of Vision 2030 and generates long-term commercial returns. THC is the Kingdom’s first and only commercial helicopter operator and has been operating since mid-2019.
