Amref Flying Doctors

AMREF Flying Doctors is the largest and best-known international air ambulance services provider in the region. We have been in the Aeromedical transport industry for close to 60 years, acquiring a huge wealth of experience, professionalism, and solid infrastructure.

AMREF Flying Doctor leads the way in Air Rescue in Africa. AMREF Flying Doctor was the first non-European, non-US air rescue provider to receive coveted accreditation from the European Aeromedical Institute – EURAMI. We are also twice a winner of the International ITIJ Air Ambulance Provider of the Year Award, the most prestigious award in the global travel and health insurance industry. This is a true reflection of the exemplary effort put in by our highly trained staff.

AMREF Flying Doctors provides air evacuation services in medical emergencies across East Africa, as well as air ambulance transfers between medical facilities. We provide air ambulance services and operate across many East African countries including Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, and when clearance can be obtained, most neighboring countries including the Democratic Republic of Congo, Eritrea, Somalia, Ethiopia, Rwanda, and Burundi.

Subject to flight clearances, AMREF Flying Doctors will carry out evacuations from anywhere on the African continent. In addition, patients can be repatriated via an AMREF Flying Doctors aircraft to Europe, Asia, and North America or a medical escort can be provided on commercial carriers.

AMREF Flying Doctors operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. As a vital link between remote areas and AMREF Flying Doctors Emergency Control Centre at Wilson Airport in Nairobi, they have established a radio network that comprises over 100 HF radio stations across East Africa, making it the largest two-way radio network in Africa. Apart from emergency evacuations, AMREF Flying Doctors provides a medical outreach program, taking essential health care to some of the most impoverished and remote areas of Africa.
