Airwing will bring one Learjet 45 ambulance aircraft to the base in Alta, manned by medical personnel from our partner Advanced Medical Support (AMS). The airwing ambulance resource will run on the long-haul network and is hired from Monday 26 October and three weeks ahead.
"Six0 per cent of all transports by ambulance aircraft in North Norway run between two long-haul flights, and the long-haul aircraft can both offload and shield the service's short-haul aircraft by taking the longest missions." (Health North)
Airwing has extensive experience in arranging medical evacuation and patient transport. Our Learjet 45 has the capacity to take up to two patients on a stretcher in addition to relatives. For the assignment in Alta, we provide our own doctor and nurse from our partner Advanced Medical Support.
