Air ambulance service at LGBI Airport soon

Guwahati:  In what could reduce precious time and financial burden for those in need of critical medical care, Assam is going to have its first dedicated air ambulance service in place at the Lokapriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport here soon.The multi-engine King Air C-90 aircraft has been configured in a manner that it can also be chartered for VIP travel, like the way it is being done in many other states like Bihar, Odisha, Haryana and Rajasthan among others as a safe mode of air travel.
Unlike what is usually practised, the cost of air ambulance transfer would come down substantially as the flight no longer has to come from Delhi, which adds to the cost and time, and the service could be availed for transporting patients within the State, too.

Flaps Aviation Private Limited, a Delhi-based aviation professionals group which plans to start medical evacuation services from major state capitals of India, is going to start working from Guwahati by deploying one of its aircraft by the end of this month.

The company has obtained all mandatory permission and clearances from the regulatory authority as well as the airport to station the aircraft and flag off the services.

Flaps Aviation has also decided to operate pan-India exclusive air ambulance service using multi-engine King Air C-90 aircraft. The entire operation will be managed through 24x7 call centre to support customers during their critical times supported by the portal bookairambulance.com.
