Your quick guide to Air Ambulances in South Africa
When it comes to the national and international transportation of patients who require medical treatment or care, we offer three options:
- A medical repatriation service, for when a patient needs to be transferred FROM South Africa to their home country.
- Medical repatriation TO South Africa: we can collect a patient at any time using an air ambulance (either an ambulance jet or an ambulance helicopter), no matter where they are in the world, and fly them back to South Africa, accompanied by medical personnel.
- We transport patients WITHIN South Africa as part of the national air ambulance service.
Medical repatriation from South Africa
There are many reasons a patient might need a medical evacuation, or medevac, during a stay in South Africa. They may fall ill unexpectedly, have an accident, injure themselves, or suffer from a flare-up of an existing medical condition. If repatriation from South Africa is necessary, our staff will organise the air medevac of the patient to their home South Africa, and will also arrange ambulance transport to and from the aircraft to guarantee the highest level of safety and care for each patient. We are happy to provide impartial, no-obligation advice in relation to medical repatriation from South Africa– call us or fill in our contact form.

Patient transport with coronavirus
We provide safe and quick transport for patients who are suffering from coronavirus. This holds also true for medical repatriations to or from South Africa.
In order to transport a coronavirus patient safely, we use a modern isolation device. Inside this device, the atmospheric pressure is lowered, so that the virus cannot leak out. Thus, the other passengers on board – the medical crew as well as possible companions – won’t get infected themselves. At the same time, the isolation device permits all medical activities that might be necessary during patient transport. Hence, the patient’s well-being is also assured.
