Luxembourg, 13 march 2015 - On 12 and 13 March 2015, a flight organised by the government of Luxembourg in cooperation with Luxembourg Air Rescue (LAR)/Luxembourg Air Ambulance (LAA, www.air-ambulance.lu), mother company of European Air Ambulance (EAA), transported a British national from Sierra Leone to the United Kingdom as a precaution for assessment and monitoring.

The plane used for the transfer was LAR’s own Learjet 45XR, equipped with a special MEDEVAC (medical evacuation) module for the care of Ebola patients.

This operation is part of the European Union Civil Protection Mechanism, in whose Voluntary Pool Luxembourg participates with two LAR airplanes in the context of the fight against the Ebola virus. Both planes have been operational since February 2015.

After the British authorities had introduced a request with the EU Civil Protection Mechanism, the competent Luxembourg authorities (the High Commissioner of National Protection and the Rescue Services Agency) and LAR responded favourably, after proceeding to an analysis of the patient’s medical data together with the World Health Organisation.
