Mesrob Karalekian, VP for Latin America at Airbus Helicopters, noted that the region has experienced economic instabilities over the last four years, but Airbus is still a dominant presence. One of the factors is the proportion of sales from the commercial market. The twin-engine H175 is a key aircraft for the company he explained because in August 2016 Pegaso Mexico took the oil and gas variant. Airbus delivered new products, like the H175, which operates in Mexico in the offshore market with Pegaso.
