Airbus Helicopters signs MoU with Czech company LOM PRAHA s.p.


In the frame of the on-going multipurpose helicopter tender of the Czech Ministry of Defence, Airbus Helicopters signed yesterday a Memorandum of Understanding with the LOM PRAHA s.p. for a future cooperation in the field of helicopter maintenance, repair and overhaul. The agreement is also covering national customisation, service & support, training and the potential to extend the activities to future export business.

The state-owned company LOM PRAHA s.p. is experienced in maintenance, training, repair, overhaul and modernisation of aircraft and helicopters, as well as training solutions for NATO. As an established service supplier to the Czech Ministry of Defence, the Company would strongly benefit from an industrial cooperation with Airbus Group, a global leader in aeronautics, space and related services.

Airbus Helicopters is a division of Airbus Group. The company provides the most efficient civil and military helicopter solutions to its customers who serve, protect, save lives and safely carry passengers in highly demanding environments.

Flying more than 3 million flight hours per year, the company’s in-service fleet includes some 12,000 helicopters operated by more than 3,000 customers in 152 countries. Airbus Helicopters employs more than 23,000 people worldwide and in 2014 generated revenues of 6.5 billion Euros. In line with the company’s new identity, fully integrated into Airbus Group, Airbus Helicopters has renamed its product range replacing the former “EC” designation with an “H”.
