NZAAS and Skyline are very proud to be the providers of the National Starship Air Ambulance Service.

With our dedicated Starship King Air 350 aircraft we are able to fly paediatric and neonatal specialist teamsto retrieve children in need, day or night, 365 days a year throughout New Zealand.

Our crew understand the urgency and complexity that these retrievals can demand, and take the utmost care to ensure that all missions are undertaken in the speediest and safest way possible. Our entire team are passionate about our involvement in the delivery of this life saving service and are committed to ensuring the best possible outcomes for our patients.

Our Starship King Air 350 comes complete with dual Lifeport medical fit out, satellite communication and state-of-the-art navigational equipment. It is the international benchmark for turbo prop air ambulance aircraft and is perfect for transporting our precious patients nonstop throughout New Zealand.

The King Air B200 and Nextant 400 XT Jet are the support aircraft for this service and are located at Auckland Airport, with additional support from the fleet of aircraft in Hawke’s Bay also operated by Skyline Aviation.
