Let’s get started…

Steps to a successful medevac operation or inter-city patient transfer.

1). The first thing we need to do is obtain the right information, Step One is you retain a clinical assessment from our Expert Doctors, as to patient condition, transport options, and any associated risks.
This involves our Intensive Care or Emergency Medicine Consultants speaking with the treating Doctor. We then recommend a plan of action and formal quote.

Let’s make plans…

Great, you’ve now received your assessment and some options outlined as to a treatment and transport plan. – So what happens now?

1). Our team plan the medevac or transfer and organise absolutely everything for you. – No hidden surprises.

2). We need to get key information from you about the patient and anyone accompanying them on the flight or road transfer.

Alternatively, if you’d prefer to dictate these details, we can fill them in for you.

Let’s make tracks (or contrails!)

You know we have some great options for your medevac or transfer, normally we decide which assets fit the clinical profile and budget best, but its important that you know all the options.

Tom and Mary

From the bottom of our hearts, we wish to thank you and your team for the kind, caring, professional manner in which they looked after Tom. The team treated us both in a warm and caring manner that helped relieve some of the pressure that we were feeling.


“It would not have been possible without Sean Coleman and his crew from Air Ambulance Australasia, who went above and beyond to help us get my sister home.”

Olympia Geary

“When I found myself stranded in a hospital in Greece, couldn’t speak the language, couldn’t get out of bed because of a busted leg, no insurance so no one would help me and had no idea what to do next, I was saved by Sean and his team, they organised flights, sent over a nurse to take me home, Even organised a small plane to get me from Christchurch to Dunedin. I was so grateful because when your in a situation like that you just don’t know what to do. They even had the food I asked for when I got off the plane! And we have been in touch ever since. So their service is much needed and appreciated all over the world. ”

Ella’s Story

After surviving a premature birth and being diagnosed with cerebral palsy, we learned our daughter Ella was a determined little girl. Ella was accepted to undergo Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy at St Louis Children’s Hospital, Missouri. This would give Ella a chance to walk. Painstakingly we managed to raise the quarter of a million dollars required and booked surgery for her fifth birthday.

What a gift!

Then, as we finalised our plans we learned that no airline would allow her to fly with the extent of her complex medical needs, specifically Ella’s unmanaged epilepsy. Sean and his team immediately recognised the importance of the task ahead. They pulled a Paediatric Intensive care team together and escorted Ella to and from St Louis safely. A year on, Ella is taking independent steps and running on her walking frame and playing shot put at school. Her epilepsy remains unmanaged, but her determination shines bright. We will be forever grateful for the generous support from Sean’s team! Arohanui
