Indonesia's PT Travira Air To Buy S-76D™ Helicopters As It Expands Offshore Oil Business

LANGKAWI, Malaysia, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. today announced that it has entered into agreements to sell two S-76D™ helicopters to PT Travira Air, a Jakarta, Indonesia-based charter airline company. Sikorsky, a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. ( NYSE:UTX), made the announcement from the Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace Exhibition.

The purchase of the two S-76D aircraft represents the latest addition to the company's fleet but also represents the launching of the S-76D helicopter in Southeast Asia.        

Sikorsky expects to deliver the S-76D helicopters in 2015. The helicopters will be used in part of an offshore oil configuration project with which PT Travira Air is associated.

"PT Travira Air's decision to select Sikorsky's S-76D is both an important step in our customer's growth, and a milestone for Sikorsky as we begin introducing the S-76D to the Southeast Asia market," said Robert Kokorda, Sikorsky's Vice President of Sales & Marketing.  "We congratulate PT Travira Air on its decision.  We wish the company well as it expands its offerings to the offshore oil industry."

The company currently has a fleet of eight S-76 ® aircraft.

In 1983, the company began direct helicopter operations with four S-76As for offshore oil projects. Since the onset of this project, the company has grown to become a very successful offshore helicopter operator. Its work in Indonesia is with such companies as Conoco Philips, BP, BHP, Newmont Mining, Chevron, Carigali Hess/Petronas, Niko Resources Canada, Murphy Oil, Amanresorts, ENI Italy and Adaro. Since 1999, the company has moved into fixed wing aircraft to support both offshore oil aircraft as well as charter VIP flights.          

Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., based in Stratford, Conn., is a world leader in helicopter design, manufacture and service. The company's mission statement reflects its long commitment to safety and innovation: "We pioneer flight solutions that bring people home everywhere ... every time™." United Technologies Corp., based in Hartford, Conn., provides a broad range of high technology products and support services to the aerospace and building systems industries.
