Airbus Helicopters Romania delivers the first new generation H135 helicopters (SMURD helicopters) to the Romanian state
Airbus Helicopters Romania has completed the delivery of the first three of the six H135 helicopters to the General Aviation Inspectorate, with the next three deliveries scheduled until mid-2021.
In September 2018, an international tender was launched for the supply of light multi-role helicopters to the Romanian state, in which Airbus Helicopters participated with the H135 variant.
Following the award of this tender, a 2019-year framework agreement was concluded at the end of July 4, providing for the purchase of up to 10 H135 helicopters, as well as support services associated with air medical operations and search missions, and rescue (SAR) in the country.

So far, following the signing of three subsequent contracts, the total order amounts to six H135 helicopters, to be used for medical evacuation missions (MEDEVAC), search and rescue in difficult conditions, especially in the mountains (SAR ) and air interventions for critical medical cases.
Upon completion of deliveries under this framework contract, the customer will have a complex and complete package that will allow him to fully operate these helicopters (logistics, spare parts, machinery, medical equipment, qualified and trained personnel).
