Bristow to Bid for SAR Contract

Bristow Helicopters announced its intent to offer the British Government a confident and assured solution for the new UK interim Search and Rescue (SAR) contract which is due to be launched following the collapse of the £6 billion SAR-H program.

Secretary of State for Transport, Philip Hammond, announced in the House of Commons on Monday, July 11, that a tender will be issued for the interim period. The contract is expected to run for up to six years until the long-term future provision of such services are fully considered.

Bristow originally held the UK SAR service contract for over three decades until 2007; during this period Bristow aircrews amassed over 11,500 SAR missions. With full desire to regain this contract, Bristow hopes to inject confidence into the Government and local communities through solid partnerships and a value for money solution which allows this vital public service to continue uninterrupted.

Richard Burman, Bristow Helicopters' Managing Director, said, "Bristow has a long and distinguished record in SAR with the Maritime Coastguard Agency and we would be delighted to service the contract again."
