IRVING, TX, March 11, 2021—CHC Group, LLC, one of the world’s leading helicopter services and maintenance, repair and overhaul providers, announces that it has entered into a conditional agreement for the acquisition of the Oil and Gas aviation business of Babcock International Group, PLC (LSE:BAB).

The business provides offshore oil and gas crew transportation services in the UK, Denmark and Australia. It is headquartered in Aberdeen (UK), employs over 500 people and operates around 30 aircraft across its three locations.
