Tyrol Air Ambulance
The company’s history dates back to 1958, when the company ‚Aircraft Innsbruck’ was founded. In 1963 the first „Public Air Transport License“ was granted for aircraft and helicopters, which were also used for ambulance flights. In 1978 the company was renamed as Tyrol Air Ambulance. The team of the internationally renowned air ambulance accompanies injured or sick patients back home or to a hospital with adequate medical care. Each year the company takes care of around three thousand patients at the highest medical level. Thanks to a global network and cooperations, the deployment range of Tyrol Air Ambulance is virtually unlimited.
