  • Uncompromising clinical quality
  • Reliable dispatch and availability
  • Transparent dealings with all clients
  • Cost effectiveness





Awesome Air Evac has its offices, air ambulance fleet and medical operations at Gate C Southside, Lanseria International Airport Johannesburg, South Africa. Lanseria Airport is a full international airport which is open 24/7 with all-weather capability, and therefore poses no hindrance to the dispatch of a flight at any time. In addition to this, the lack of large commercial airline traffic at Lanseria ensures that dispatch and landing delays are minimised, and the central location of Lanseria in Gauteng means that almost all major hospitals can be reached within 45 minutes’ drive of the airport.

Our 24/7 Flight Desk is manned by medically qualified staff. The Flight Desk is operated from a full Call Centre platform which includes a case management system and voice logging. The Flight Desk handles all flight requests and tracks all flights from start to finish. Detailed updates on flight progress are given to clients at every step during a flight.

Aircraft maintenance and scheduling is controlled and managed through our in-house maintenance controller and line support. Our dedicated engineers enjoy full manufacturer and OEM support while our fleet types ensure parts support, availability and common knowledge bases and skill sets.
