Luxembourg, 19 December 2014 - We would like to inform you of a change in the structure of European Air Ambulance (EAA). As you know, EAA was founded in 2006 as a partnership between Luxemburg Air Ambulance (LAA) and DRF Luftrettung. We would now like to advise you, that DRF Luftrettung has decided to cease carrying out international medical repatriations for third-party clients, including travel insurers and assistances; and is therefore no longer involved in EAA.
DRF Luftrettung has also sold one medically-configured LearJet 45XR to LAA, which will also be used for government contracts, such as the international repatriation of Ebola patients.
EAA now coordinates a fleet of 3 LearJet 45XR and 2 LearJet 35A, with all aircraft being dedicated air ambulance aircraft equipped as intensive care units and henceforth based in Luxembourg, the home to EAA’s Mission Control Center.
This structural change in no way affects the quality of service that EAA will continue to offer in the field of international medical repatriations. Indeed, the change regroups the whole EAA operations and administration under one roof, and will enable the optimisation of the fleet and give the client one point of contact for each operational, medical or administrative request.
Medical repatriation missions will still be offered with an English, a German or a French speaking medical crew, depending on the client’s request.
Under the new structure, all existing EAA contracts and agreements with clients will of course remain valid.
As a result of the change, EAA has new contact numbers starting January 2015:
Tel: +352 26 26 00
Fax: +352 26 26 01
(The old phone/fax numbers will still remain active for at least one year in order to allow a smooth transition).
EAA has however, retained its e-mail address and Internet website:
We look forward to continuing to provide you with our full range of medical repatriation services in 2015 and beyond, and thank you for the confidence you have placed in European Air Ambulance.
