United Arab Emirates helicopter company, Abu Dhabi Aviation (ADA) has completed steps to invest in Nigeria economy by joining forces with a Nigerian indigenous aircraft charter operator, OAS Helicopters.
The company said the arrival of ADA's 15-seater full offshore equipped helicopter AW-139 with registration number A6-AWH at OAS' new terminal NAFBASE Airport, Port Harcourt recently completed the take off of ADA and OAS' relationship, which had been undergoing technical and legal structuring since 2015.
In the partnership, Abu Dhabi Aviation is coming with long years of successful oil and gas helicopter support experiences which started back in 1976 and has developed to over 60 aircraft in active operation and over 1,000,000 flight hours supporting oil and gas exploration throughout the countries of the Middle East, Brazil, Spain, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand. According to Abu Dhabi Aviation's AFB Contracts manager, Kevin Den Hertog told THISDAY.
"ADA had always wanted to invest in Nigeria but had searched and waited to find a reliable and resilient partner which eventually clicked with OAS' history and ability to remain firm in operation for over ten years despite daunting challenges.
