Dear All,


Please see below press release on ‘Medevac Flight Today’.

An emergency aero-medical evacuation will take place this afternoon from St Helena Airport when a Falcon 20 aircraft operated by emergency response specialists ER24 arrives from Walvis Bay, Namibia, to collect a baby needing urgent medical care. 


The aircraft is due to arrive at St Helena Airport at around 2pm local time for a quick turnaround, bound for Cape Town, where the patient will be transferred to Vincent Pallotti Hospital.


The public is asked to respect the family’s privacy at this time.  An update will be issued in due course.
