Air Greenland announced last month it has canceled the purchase of two EC225s. “In August 2013, the company observed that the market for offshore operations around Greenland had not developed as expected since the time of the order in 2011,” the carrier explained. It also said it attempted to sell the rotorcraft to other parties with no success. Under the final agreement, Air Greenland will pay a waiver of DKK16 million ($2.8 million), just over 4 percent of the value of the 2011 contract.
Aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul services firm Vector Aerospace (Booth No. C4332) renewed its engine services agreement with Air Greenland, based in Nuuk, Greenland. Under this two-year extension, Vector provides Air Greenland with fixed- and rotary-wing engine repair and overhaul support from its two facilities in Canada–Vector Aerospace Engine Services Atlantic in Summerside, Prince Edward Island, and Vector Aerospace Helicopter Services North America in Richmond, British Columbia.
