The Swiss helicopter operator Air Zermatt has signed a purchase agreement with Bell Textron for the purchase of another Bell 429. It is the third helicopter of this type that will be operated.
Air Zermatt specializes in conducting rescue flights. However, transport flights are also offered and the eleven helicopters and the plane can also be chartered. "Air Zermatt operates in one of the most demanding environments in the world to conduct search and rescue missions," said Patrick Moulay, senior vice president, International Commercial Business, Bell. "The acquisition of a third Bell 429 for their HEMS operations is a true testament to their trust in Bell and its aircraft."
