Air ambulance service from Guwahati begins

Posted by

Assam Transport, Industries and Commerce Minister Chandra Mohan Patowary formally launched an air ambulance service at NEDFi (North Eastern Development Finance Corporation Ltd) House, Dispur on Thursday.
Delhi-based Flaps Aviation Private Ltd will operate its air ambulance service from Guwahati with “Book Air Ambulance” as its brand.
The air ambulance is equipped with all emergency medical equipment and has a medical team to take care of patients on-board.
Unveiling the service, Patowary hoped that the air ambulance service would usher in a new era of healthcare for the patients of Assam and Northeast.
“Since the air ambulance will be parked at Guwahati airport, it will lessen its cost by half. Earlier, an ambulance had to fly from Delhi to take a patient from Guwahati to the national capital. Besides, the services will also facilitate organ transplants during critical times,” he said.
