Maersk Oil stops all flight with crash-prone helicopter

The manufacturer Airbus Helicopters and Danish Transport and Construction Agency do not plan to issue a ban on flight for the helicopter type which was involved in Friday's crash in Norway where 13 people were killled.

Maersk Oil suspends all flights with EC 225 helicopters after Friday's accident in Norway which cost 13 people their lives, informs the company in a press release on Monday.

This makes the company the only one in Denmark to implement a de facto Danish flight ban on the helicopter. This is a step which the Danish Transport and Construction Agency has not yet taken after the changes in statements from the helicopter manufacturer. Aviation authorities in Norway and the UK have both issued flight bans on EC 225 helicopters after the accident.
