European plane maker Airbus SE said Thursday that Air Methods Corp. signed a $24 million contract with Airbus Helicopters Inc. that will run for five years.

Under the agreement, the European plane maker will provide services like helicopter maintenance, material management and technical support for the air medical-service provider's fleet of 31 EC145 helicopters.

"This is Air Methods' first HCare contract with Airbus, and discussions are underway to extend similar support coverage to other aircraft models in the Air Methods fleet, which also includes the H125, H130, H135 and H145," said Airbus.
