NHV has officially opened its new hangar, apron and passenger handling facilities at their operational base at Aberdeen airport with an event attended by Simon Gray, Chief Executive, East of England Energy Group.
The new two-storey passenger handling terminal incorporates all the facilities required to process offshore passengers including check in, x-ray, security, safety equipment storage & issue, safety briefing rooms etc. and is fully CAA/DFT compliant.
The heliport facility is located at the North East corner of the Aberdeen Dyce Airport within a short distance to the runways and limited taxi time needed, which provides significant advantages to customers.
Lesley Philip, Logistics team leader at Chevron Upstream Europe, commented: “The new heliport has been well received by our offshore community.
“The modern, spacious facility supports efficient passenger processing, which is further aided by the ability to exit the briefing room directly onto the tarmac and airside.
“Many of our offshore personnel have provided positive feedback on the comfort level and leisure facilities on offer, such as pool, Wi-Fi and TVs, prior to departure.”
Eric Van Hal, Chief Executive, NHV Group, added: “Our new facilities in Aberdeen are very important for NHV to enable the company to serve its existing and future customers in one of the most strategic helicopter hubs of the industry. It will also allow us to strengthen our position in the UK market.”
