Air Ambulance (Medicair)

Medicair provides a dedicated point to point air ambulance service with a devoted focus on quality care and safety.


St John has partnered with Tropicair Ltd to provide PNG’s leading air ambulance service.

The partnership is a match made in the sky. It began in early 2018 and was formalised by agreement in April 2019.

The strength of our skilled, local medical team combines with Tropicair’s fast and efficient fleet of aircraft to offer the best air ambulance and patient transport solution within Papua New Guinea and throughout the Australasian region.

We offer cost effective, comfortable and stress-free domestic and international medical transport for patients and their families, whether as part of planned patient transfer or in quick response to an emerging situation.

We make getting help stress-free

Individuals taken ill while abroad and needing emergency assistance to get them home can also rely on our air  ambulance team of emergency doctors and specialist paramedics.

Our coordination centre can arrange to get you help anywhere in Papua New Guinea, Bougainville or the Solomon Islands.

Our expert team will make all arrangements to get you to safety, liaising with local medical teams and acting in the best interest of the patient at all times.

We are only one call away – (+675) 303 1000 or free-call 111 or info@medicair.com.pg

Our Commitment

Medicair provides the experience and commitment to deliver dedicated and reliable air ambulance services to those companies and individuals working in, living in or visiting Papua New Guinea.

Aiming towards a publicly funded air ambulance

St John CEO Matt Cannon said, revenue that St John makes by providing the private air ambulance services is invested into sustaining and improving our public emergency services.

Our long-term vision is a free public air ambulance for mothers in labour and people affected by major trauma.

“The experience we have from years of providing a fee-based private air ambulance will be of tremendous value as we look to bring on board (no pun intended) significant public and private investment to fund a free air ambulance,” Cannon said.
