Wing-to-wing air ambulance alliance launched at ITIC Geneva 2018

Lisa Humphries of Capital with Dr Bettina Vadera of AMREF signing the agreement

UK aeromedical service Capital Air Ambulance and AMREF Flying Doctors, based in Kenya, have formed an alliance providing wing to wing air ambulance services between Africa and Europe. Both partners are EURAMI accredited and medical protocols, equipment and staff have been aligned to operate at the same level to ensure patient care is consistent across the entire repatriation. 

A wing-to-wing air ambulance alliance offers an efficient aeromedical service between Africa and Europe to insurance and assistance clients under one brand, Capital said, while also providing the high professional level that both companies are known and accredited for.
