Waypoint Leasing agreed to terms for the purchase and lease-back of one AW139 helicopter with Helicopteros Nacionales de Colombia, SAS (HELICOL), which will be used in support of contracts within the offshore oil and gas sector in Colombia. This is Waypoint’s first lease transaction with HELICOL and first in Colombia.
Steffen Bay, Waypoint vice president of sales and relationship management for Latin America, said, “HELICOL has been modernizing its helicopter fleet over the last year, and we are pleased to be part of that growth. The AW139 is a new technology aircraft, which will allow HELICOL to operate for all major oil companies currently operating in Colombia. Their continued demand for offshore-equipped aircraft is a testament to their vision and to improving market conditions. We look forward to working alongside HELICOL to continue to help the company meet its financial and operational objectives.”
“We are pleased to have completed this transaction with Waypoint,” said Juan David Restrepo Botero, general manager of HELICOL. “In addition to their technical expertise and operational perspective, we choose to work with them to benefit from their flexible lease options.”
