Global Air Ambulance Services. Medical Assistance Services for the Alpine Region.

Our area of operations: worldwide. Tyrol Air Ambulance provides fast and professional assistance in medical emergency situations abroad – for example after accidents or in case of acute life-threatening diseases. We make full use of our technical and operational know-how to guarantee state-of-the-art air ambulance services. When every second counts, Tyrol Air Ambulance will be at the right place at the right time.

In that moment, the only things that matter are receiving the best medical care available and returning home as quickly and as safely as possible.

Our commitment: air ambulance pioneer. Tyrol Air Ambulance has its origins in “Aircraft Innsbruck”. The company was granted its flight operating licence in 1963, when the aviation pioneer Dr. Max Schuh and the medical doctor Univ.-Prof. Dr. Gerhard Flora started to rescue injured skiers from Tyrol’s glaciers. In July 1976, an air ambulance jet repatriated an injured tourist from Greece for the first time. From then on, “Aircraft Innsbruck” operated under the trading name “Tyrol Air Ambulance” (formerly Tyrolean Air Ambulance) with state-of-the-art medical equipment on board. In 1980, Tyrol Air 4

Ambulance operated the first scheduled shuttle flights by airliners with patients and in 1983, Tyrol Air Ambulance and the Austrian Automobile Association (ÖAMTC) started the Austrian rescue helicopter network “Christophorus”.

In 2013, Tyrol Air Ambulance was voted “Air Ambulance Provider of the Year” at the International Travel & Health Insurance Journal (ITIJ) Industry Awards, acknowledging excellence in innovation, achievement and quality of service.

The new century started with Welcome Air as the major shareholder. A new system of year-round scheduled patient shuttle flights were introduced. These shuttle flights were operated for nearly two decades from holiday destinations around the Mediterranean Sea.

For individual ambulance missions Tyrol Air Ambulance operates a fleet of ambulance jets for short and medium-haul flights as well as for long-distance flights.
