Shepherd Media has announced that Lao Skyway has recently purchased a brand new H125 Helicopter from Airbus Helicopters for civil and parapublic missions, including domestic charter flights and search-and-locate operations. The Lao private airline is expected to receive a second H125 in May later this year.
The Laos-based airline made the order in August 2016.
Airbus Helicopters Southeast Asia Managing Director Derek Sharples said: “We are honoured by Lao Skyway’s trust and confidence in us, as the H125 begins its maiden flight in Laos this year.”
Sharples believes that Laos is an important market for Airbus, and is delighted to see the company’s presence growing in the country, with helicopters serving the needs of the Laotian skies well.
“Airbus Helicopters remains committed to ensuring the fullest support to Lao Skyway, as it grows its fleet and operations in the coming years,” adds Sharples.
Previously known as Lao Air, Lao Skyway is a private airline with its headquarters at Wattay International Airport in Vientiane, Laos. It operates scheduled and charter services to airports in the country not served by Lao Airlines.
The company’s logo comprises 3 boomerangs, which together form a bird. This reflects the company’s commitment and priority of safety: Lao Skyway’s aircrafts will fly to their destinations and will always safely return to home base.
