As COVID-19 forces huge changes in our communities, we want to reassure you that Life Flight’s emergency air services remain fully operational – and we’re taking all measures to ensure we can keep it that way. 


What we're doing

We continue to follow the clinical protocols of our partners at Capital Coast DHB, Wellington Free Ambulance and MOH, and are taking precautions to keep our patients, pilots, crew, paramedics and support staff safe and well.  


The challenge

One of our biggest challenges now is funding. We have had to cancel all fundraising and community events in the near future, which provide vital support to keep us flying.  


We are incredibly thankful for those local businesses, partners and supporters who continue to fund Life Flight when it’s needed most. 

Our thoughts are with you and your loved ones. We hope you all stay safe and well during these challenging times.  


Thank you again, 

The Life Flight team
