AgustaWestland said Saudi Aramco has placed an order for an AW139 intermediate twin helicopter.

Aramco already has a fleet of AW139 helicopters.

The new unit will be used to perform offshore and VIP transport operations in Saudi Arabia, AgustaWestland said.

The Italian aircraft maker — part of the Finmeccanica group — has sold more than 130 AW139s to customers in the Middle East.

The company said over  200 customers from more than 60 countries have ordered almost 760 AW139 helicopters so far.
