Bond Helicopters has launched operations in Australia to provide offshore services to the energy industry.

The company’s launch is based around its first major contract – a multi-million dollar, five-year agreement with the PTTEP Australasia Group of Companies (PTTEP), part of Thailand’s national petroleum exploration and production company. Bond will initially support PTTEP’s Timor Sea operations with three 19-seat Eurocopter AS332L helicopters, until three new  EC225 helicopters are delivered in early 2014.

The aircraft will fly from Mungalalu-Truscott airbase in Western Australia.

John Boag, managing director, Bond Helicopters Australia, said: “I am thrilled to be launching Bond in Australia, and I look forward to continuing to build our offshore business in such an exciting market.”

Bond is part of the Avincis Group, a provider of mission critical aerial services. The Group has a strong presence in the North and Mediterranean seas, where it has experience serving oil and gas companies, particularly through its Aberdeen-based subsidiary Bond Offshore Helicopters.
