Airbus Helicopters has been awarded a contract from South Korea’s National 119 Rescue Headquarters for the purchase of two additional H225 helicopters. The National 119 Rescue Headquarters currently operates an all-Airbus helicopter fleet comprising two AS365 N2 and two H225. This new purchase will bring the fleet of the country’s primary provider of firefighting and rescue services to six helicopters by end 2019. The agency will be using these two multirole H225 helicopters for search and rescue missions, with the flexibility to reconfigure them to accommodate fire-fighting and emergency medical services equipment onboard the aircraft.
