From its base in Vung Tau, Southern Service Flight Company (SSFC)
has already begun operating its two new AS332 L2 Super Pumas.
The second aircraft landed in Vietnam on 19 October 2007,
hot on the heels of the first aircraft which flew to Vung Tau in June.
SSFC has a fleet of four AS332 L2 Super Pumas and
two EC155s, which provide services to the oil & gas
industry in Vietnam. “We mainly transport passengers to
the oil platforms, although we also perform exploration
work, geological and topographical surveys, and filming
and photography,” explains Nguyen Duc Hoa, the SSFC
director. “We chose the AS332 L2 Super Puma again
because we are very satisfied with this aircraft. It is a
helicopter with the very latest technology, which meets
the requirements of our oil & gas and search & rescue
missions perfectly. SSFC wants to carry on expanding
its fleet and extending into new markets beyond the
borders of Vietnam,” continues Nguyen Duc Hoa. With
this in mind, the company signed a letter of intent in
October to purchase two additional EC225s.
Northern SFC, an associate company of SSFC, also
signed a contract in October to buy two EC155s, which
will be operated in the oil & gas sector.
