North Sea helicopter crash: Shell resumes flights with CHC

Shell news

Oil major Shell has resumed flights with CHC in Norway almost a month after a North Sea helicopter crash which killed 13 people.

The company had suspended its operations with the helicopter operator in the wake of the accident on April 29th.

Alternative flights were carried out to its two North Sea fields using Bristow Helicopters instead.

The decision to resume CHC flights comes as the Norwegian Civil Aviation Authority decided to suspend all use of the Super Puma H225 after the Accident Investigation Board Norway (AIBN) called
on the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to take “immediate action” to ensure the aircraft was safe.

Shell has resumed its flights to the Draugen field using the Sikorsky S92 helicopters.

A spokesman for the company said: “We can confirm that A/S Norske Shell earlier this week resumed CHC Helicopter Service passenger flights for Draugen, using Sikorsky S92 helicopters.

“Shell Aircraft has completed the process to reaffirm that the operational requirements are safeguarded.

“We have had a constructive cooperation with CHC Helicopter Service.”
