Capital Air Ambulance provides a rapid response to requests for medical assistance and medical repatriation flights 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
We also provide medical escorts on commercial airline flights or via ground ambulance and offer medical case handling and/or translation services through our highly experienced, multilingual team.
Founded in 1991, Capital Air Ambulance has been part of the Rigby Group plc aviation division, a trusted flying partner to the Royal Navy and experienced Search and Rescue service provider, since 2014. Capital has many years experience and is the only EURAMI accredited UK air ambulance provider to operate its own fleet of aircraft. Our team comprises highly experienced critical care, emergency care and other specialist doctors and nurses, and highly trained pilots and operations staff.
Capital Air Ambulance provides bed-to-bed transfers for the full spectrum of patients with acute and chronic medical conditions, using our dedicated fleet of air ambulances and on commercial airliners. Our resources include specialist adult, neonatal and paediatric equipment, and we fly with critical care capability on board should the patient require this level of care from the outset, or in the event that his/her medical condition deteriorates during the journey.
Our medical repatriation team is available 24 hours a day to ensure we can be fully and accurately briefed by medical staff at the point of origin, both ahead of and upon collection of the patient.
