Simrik Air Helicopter starts carrying COVID-19 positive patients

Kathmandu, 16th Oct 18. Simrik Air now starts providing exclusive air ambulance service for COVID-19 positive patients.
Nepal Government and Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) provided permission to Simrik Air to carry Coronavirus infected patients adhering to the health and safety guidelines following the protocols of the Ministry of Health and Population and WHO.
Simrik has thus dedicated its 02 helicopters exclusively to carry COVID-19 positive patients among 05 helicopters in its fleet. The first infected patient airlifted by Simrik Air Helicopter on Monday, 12th October 2020, was from Butwal to Kathmandu HAMS Hospital in a Patient Isolation Unit – Biological (Negative Pressure) Isolation Chamber, dedicated for carrying patients infected by COVID-19.
Simrik has been delivering impeccable service by transferring patients requiring immediate treatment to the requested sectors/hospitals even during the lockdown period.
It is indeed a matter of concern that the Coronavirus Pandemic is spreading rapidly in most parts of Nepal. In this grave situation, CAAN providing permission to Simrik Air to airlift COVID-19 positive patients from all over Nepal is certainly a relief for the patients requiring emergency attention and treatment.
In this testing period, Simrik Air Helicopter is committed to saving lives, delivering you with the safest and the most efficient service wherever and whenever.
