Airbus has welcomed the Indonesian Air Force’s decision to order an additional eight multi-role H225M helicopters as the country looks to strengthen its combat search and rescue-capable fleet.

The agreement will see Indonesia's existing fleet of H225Ms increase to 14, and will be delivered upon reassembly and completion of the mission equipment outfitting and customisation by PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PTDI).

"The H225M is a combat-proven helicopter that is well regarded by military customers worldwide, and Indonesia’s additional order speaks strongly of their confidence in Airbus’ helicopters,” said Ben Bridge, executive vice president of global business at Airbus Helicopters.

“Indonesia continues to play a vital role in Airbus Helicopters’ global industrial footprint. With a trusted partner in PTDI, we stand ready to support the availability of Indonesia’s fleet."

The fleet will be used to carry out combat search and rescue missions by the Indonesian Air Force.

Indonesia and Airbus Helicopters have a long-standing partnership dating back to 1976 when PTDI first obtained a licence to produce the NBO-105 helicopter, and became a key supplier of the H225 rear fuselage and main airframe in 2008, resulting in full production in Indonesia in 2011.

There are 88 H225Ms currently in service across six nations, and the helicopters have recently been ordered by Hungary, Kuwait and Singapore.
