KOC Renews Helicopter Service Contract with DGCA

KOC and the Air Navigation Department from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) recently renewed their cooperation agreement, which oversees the use of helicopter services for transport and air ambulance activity - a service which KOC launched last year.


The agreement was signed on behalf of the Company by Team Leader Transport Operations Engineer Hezam Al-Ajmi, while Faisal Al-Asousi from the Air Navigation Department signed on behalf of the DGCA. The contract renewal includes the addition of a new airstrip for the Company’s operations in South Ratqa.

Al-Ajmi organized a visit for the DGCA representatives to the facilities of the main helicopter operations facility in Ahmadi. The visit aimed to consolidate relations between the two parties and follow up on the procedures and operations related to the Company’s helicopter service activities. In addition, the visit also served as a further example of the continuous cooperation between the two parties in the interest of the State of Kuwait.


The visit included a drill which oversaw the request of an evacuation service and air ambulance for an emergency situation. This was followed by the members of the visiting delegation expressing their admiration for what KOC has accomplished at the facility and the extent of the preparedness displayed by the Company to meet the required services. At the conclusion of the event, Al-Ajmi thanked the Civil Aviation Administration for its cooperation in overcoming all obstacles related to this vital project.
