About Wales Air Ambulance

About Wales Air Ambulance

Our Vision

To provide a 24h air operation

It is our vision to provide a 24-hour air ambulance operation, and continually strive for an outstanding air ambulance service available to everyone in Wales.

Serving Wales, Saving Lives

Wales Air Ambulance covers the whole of Wales every single day. Each year our helicopters attend around 2,500 missions, covering rural countryside, bustling towns and cities, along the Welsh coastline and across vast mountain ranges. Our four airbase operations in Caernarfon, Llanelli, Welshpool and Cardiff are ready to saves lives wherever needed.

The Platinum 20 minutes

Wales Air Ambulance can be there for anyone in Wales within 20 minutes. But we don’t just fly patients to hospital – we take A&E directly to you. Our critical care consultants and practitioners have some of the most pioneering equipment and skills in the world, including blood products and techniques developed in the army, meaning patients receive advanced care before they even reach the hospital.

How much does it cost to run the service?

Wales Air Ambulance is funded by the people of Wales; we rely entirely on the public’s support to help keep the helicopters flying. The charity does not receive direct funding from the government and we also fail to qualify for National Lottery funding. Our helicopters are kept in the air through charitable donations, fundraising events and membership of our in-house Lifesaving Lottery.

We need to raise £6.5 million every year to operate the service, with each mission on average costing £1500.
