Leonardo is expanding its helicopter customer support and training services in Europe with the establishment of a service center, headquartered at Paris-Le Bourget Airport. The new service center has already begun operations in mid-April and will act in strict coordination with Leonardo Belgium Logistics Hub, supporting the growing fleet of Leonardo commercial and public service helicopters in France and Central Europe.
The new service center covers a 2000+ m2 indoor area, including maintenance and repair hangar and offices with the capability to serve the AW109 series, AW169 and AW139 types in Central Europe and will add the AW189 in the future. The service center will provide support for the VIP/corporate helicopter fleet, which has proven increasingly successful in this part of Europe in recent years and keeps growing, adding more customer services under the new Agusta VIP brand with a dedicated area.
The opening of the new service center in Paris, a crucial area for civil and VIP helicopter operations, demonstrates Leonardo’s long-term commitment in the region and aligns to Leonardo’s focus on stronger support services and proximity. Enhanced services will help maximize the helicopter fleet’s mission effectiveness and safety for the benefit of operators, crews and the served communities.
