As New Zealand hunkers down for a second lockdown, we want to take the time to reassure you that Life Flight’s emergency air services will remain fully operational. 

Life Flight is well positioned to respond to COVID19 and the Delta Variant. We follow best practice clinical guidelines; our helicopter and plane crew wear PPE, decontaminate surfaces and thoroughly wash clothes to keep patients, their whānau, their community and themselves safe. 

Unfortunately, August and September are a time where many of our large fundraising and community events are held. These are events we rely on for providing vital funds to keep our team in the air. 

While our operational team fly and our support team continue to work remotely, we want to acknowledge our amazing team of supporters, local businesses and partners. You continue to believe in and fund the work we do when we need it most; thank you. 

We sincerely hope you and your whānau are doing as well as possible. We have done this before; we can get through it again. 


Stay safe, look out for one another, and kia kaha. 

The Life Flight team
