MANILA, Philippines — Charter operator AirTaxi.ph has expanded its fleet with the recent delivery of its first single-engine H130 helicopter from Airbus.

The new H130 helicopter will be dedicated for commercial operations, including passenger transport and sightseeing services in the southern islands of the Philippines, including Boracay, Cebu, and Palawan.

It augments the two H145 helicopters currently operational for AirTaxi.ph.

“We are excited to introduce the first H130 into our expanding fleet. Having experienced the outstanding performance of the twin-engine H145 and the success it has brought us, we are confident that the H130 is a timely and ideal addition to meet our needs as we grow our operations in the Philippines,” AirTaxi.ph executive vice president Peter Angelo Rodriguez said.

“We are delighted that AirTaxi.ph has chosen our H130 to bolster their current helicopter fleet for heli-tourism. We are confident that the highly agile and high performing H130 will fulfil every mission excellently, and lives up to its reputation as the best-selling helicopter in the Philippines,” added Lionel de Maupeou, managing director of Airbus Helicopters Philippines.

The H130 is a member of the Ecureuil family of light helicopters known for its performance, reliability, safety and multi-mission capability.

It has a spacious eight-seat configuration and large unobstructed cabin, making it extremely ideal for passenger transportation.
