This S-76C++ contract is the fourth to be executed by a U.K. customer.
"We are delighted that Air Harrods has chosen the S-76 again," said Sikorsky Regional Sales Manager Alex Sharp. "We are particularly pleased with this transaction, as it marks the fourth S-76 to be operated by Air Harrods. We view this as continued recognition of the outstanding safety, reliability, proven performance and value for money that the S-76 offers."
Initially set up over ten years ago as a private operation, Air Harrods has grown into a successful VIP helicopter charter and management company. Air Harrods operates four helicopters, all of which are luxuriously appointed and offer customers uncompromised levels of comfort and safety.
"Air Harrods is committed to providing the most luxurious and technologically advanced helicopters for its customers and our fourth S-76 will meet these criteria. We are sure the S-76C++ will be a very popular choice for charter," said Steve Grimes, Air Harrods Chief Executive.
