Waypoint Leasing (Ireland) Limited (Waypoint), the largest independent global helicopter leasing company, has announced that it has reached a lease agreement for two helicopters with Titan Helicopter Group (Titan), a leading provider of helicopter services with operations spanning South Africa, Namibia, Angola, Equatorial Guinea, Libya, Peru, Antarctica, Mozambique, India and the Ivory Coast.
The AW139 delivered new from AgustaWestland as part of Waypoint’s order book and the Sikorsky S76C+ is a purchase and leaseback from the Titan fleet. Both aircraft will be operated by Titan to provide offshore crew change support in South Africa and Namibia.
Ed Washecka, CEO of Waypoint Leasing, said, “We are excited to be part of Titan’s continued expansion. Titan is the largest helicopter services company in South Africa with a great history of operating on several continents, and we appreciate their confidence in Waypoint.”
“We are pleased to commence our relationship with Waypoint Leasing with the closing of our first transaction together,” explained Titan Chairman Martin Steynberg. “With the Waypoint team’s experience as operators they understand what is important for customers. The addition of our second AW139 will enhance our capabilities further to offer the latest technology equipment to our clientele.”
