When speed to hospital is critical or when the location is remote or difficult Life Flight’s rescue team is called upon. The Westpac Rescue Helicopter serves the Greater Wellington and Marlborough regions.

Life Flight provides a 24/7 nationwide rescue helicopter and air ambulance medical aircraft service transporting critically ill patients who urgently require specialist medical care often only available in one or two hospitals in New Zealand.

The air ambulance medical aircraft service is like a flying intensive care ward staffed by specialist flight nurses, doctors and crew.

Life Flight coordinates a full bed-to-bed service, taking care of all logistics and providing the aircraft, equipment and expert medical teams.
