Air ambulance has quickly become a preference when arranging transport for organ donations or organ transplant patients. It offers an emergency transport service which is fundamental to providing first class emergency care. An organ retrieval service is a vital part of the transplantation pathway and provides a national 24 hours service for retrieving organs from donors across the UK. Timely organ transport is critical with most organs only being viable for a few hours.

Air ambulances play an important role is this life saving service. The Air Ambulance selection is very important in the transportation process. It is essential to be sure that aircraft and pilot are always available and will take off on time. Air ambulances are 100% safe for sensitive organ transport, like kidney and liver transport. Depending on distance and logistics, all donor organs are transported on either a LearJet 45 or PC12 aircraft.


247 Aviation Air Ambulance play a vital role in the safe transportation of donated organs. Through our service partner IMT Medical Transport, 247 Aviation has access to proprietary donor organ tracking and logistics software designed to quickly determine the most efficient transport plan to get the donor organ to the transplant recipient as quickly as possible. Through joint efforts with IMT Medical ground ambulance service and Jet Assist Aviation ground handling services we ensure a safe and rapid transfer from the donation site directly to the hospital where the organ transplant recipient is being treated. Our air ambulance fleet are available at a moment’s notice alongside our dedicated medical teams, deliver the patient or donated organs from one location to another throughout the UK.

A chance for a better life with 247 Aviation


Air ambulances serve to save lives. It can be a very stressful time for anyone who is in need of a suitable organ and for their families. An organ transplantation not only dramatically improves the length and quality of life of the recipients but also saves the NHS money. Organs routinely transplanted include heart, lung, liver, pancreas, and bowel but other organs that may be transplanted include thymus, hand, face, leg, abdominal wall, and uterus. Our goal is to improve the lifespan and quality of life of the recipient so that they can spend more time with family and friends, be more physically active, and pursue their interests more fully.


Perhaps one of the most selfless acts a person can ever commit is donating a piece of life and 247 Aviation and its partners work to support this act. We as a company acknowledge and appreciate the commitment and dedication of the healthcare and aviation professionals involved in this service, which is often delivered in challenging circumstances, through anti-social hours and in unfamiliar environments, across the UK.
