Bristow Helicopters has secured a contract with oil and gas exploration and production company Apache North Sea to support its North Sea operations. The contract has a five-year primary term, with further extension options, and will commence on 1 September.
Aircraft types provided under the contract are the Sikorsky S-92 and Leonardo AW189. Alan Corbett, managing director of Bristow Helicopters, says: "I am immensely proud of our teams for all the hard work that went into securing this work, especially in this difficult climate. This is our first contract with Apache in the UK, and we are very pleased to have established this relationship with it.
"Bristow has been flying oil and gas passengers out of Aberdeen since 1965 and, as ever, our commitment to our passengers and our clients remains the most important focus for us." Established in the UK by London-born Alan Bristow in 1955, Bristow Helicopters offers offshore transportation, fixed-wing services, search and rescue services, and most recently, unmanned offshore inspection services.
