Airbus Helicopters said following additional information gathered since a North Sea helicopter crash, that it has no plans to suspend flights for the Super Puma EC225.
The company had previously said it would suspend all commercial flights using that particular helicopter model.
However, in a short statement the company said after assessing further information it would not suspend flights of any nature for the EC225.
It said “out of respect” for those affected by the accident, Airbus Helicopters would continue to stand by the decision taken by the Norwegian and UK authorities to put commercial EC225 flights on hold in Norway and the UK.
A spokesman said: “Considering the additional information gathered during the last 48 hours, Airbus Helicopters’ decision, at this stage, is to not suspend flights of any nature for the EC225LP.”
