Airbus SE said Saturday that its Airbus Helicopters unit signed a second purchase agreement with Saudi Arabia's Helicopter Co. for 26 aircraft.

The European plane maker said that the order comprises twenty H145 helicopters and six ACH160 models.

"The Helicopter Co. previously signed an agreement to buy 10 Airbus H125 helicopters to increase access to domestic tourism destinations and provide services such as filming and aerial surveying--and is now further expanding its services with the addition of the H145 and H160 to its fleet," it said.

The Helicopter Co. was established by the sovereign wealth fund of Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund.
