AT European Air Ambulance, we are always looking for ways to enhance the services we offer – so we are very proud to announce the introduction of a new, bigger aircraft to our fleet.

Our first long-range option, the Challenger 605 will give us greater operational capabilities, in line with our mission to provide safe, quick and cost-effective medical repatriation 24/7/365 worldwide.

As our valued clients and trusted partners know, EAA - a brand of Luxembourg Air Ambulance - is an expert in international air ambulance repatriation, with more than three decades of experience in aeromedical transport.

We are renowned for the standard of our service and the quality of our care – but we never rest on our successes; we’re always looking to the future and assessing what more we can do to provide the best and most cost-effective services to customers and patients.

Through these difficult and uncertain times, when the whole world has been so enormously affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve adapted our methods to keep providing the best service we can – and we want to be ready for whatever the future brings, with enhanced and more flexible options for our clients.

So last summer, we made the major decision to invest in a larger aircraft – a Bombardier Challenger 605 for dedicated air ambulance use – to give us the capacity to operate longer range missions and carry more patients.

The aircraft will be based at our state-of-the-art headquarters at Luxembourg Airport, becoming operational in the August 2021 when our Mission Control Centre team will begin scheduling worldwide repatriations.

Who will benefit from the new aircraft?

The Challenger will be available for use by all our existing EAA clients around the world, and of course by potential future ones.

It will offer significant advantages to clients who specifically need longer range flight options and those who are operating globally; and it will be a particularly interesting option for companies working with expatriate contracts and who need a fast response and quick repatriation service.

Assistance companies transporting Covid19 patients will be able to make use of the aircraft, with all our Covid-secure measures in place including the isolation units that are necessary on many missions at the current time, and which themselves take up room onboard.

And it will also be available to VIP patients (such as one we transported during the summer), who need room to accommodate their support personnel or who simply want a more spacious aircraft.

We will update you further over the coming weeks, to let you know more about our new aircraft and its capabilities, and the benefits it will bring to EAA’s clients and partners.
