VWS closes temporary contract with Medicair for Air ambulance between Caribbean Netherlands, Curaçao and Aruba

Aire Ambulance

The Ministry of Health Welfare and Sport (VWS) has taken note of the
problems and growing concerns about Code Red (air ambulance) flights in the
Caribbean Netherlands. In consultation with Fundashon Mariadal (FM), VWS
has taken the following measures.
To ensure the connectivity of air ambulance between Caribbean Netherlands,
Curacao and Aruba, VWS has closed a contract with Medicair (for 2 months
for now). With this VWS temporarily assumes the contractual responsibility for
the availability of an air ambulance for insured citizens of the Caribbean
Netherlands towards Curacao and Aruba, available 24/7. FM will make
medical personnel available for code red flights with Medicair. Meanwhile,
Medicair's Learjet is stationed on Bonaire. Sarpa will continue to operate
ambulance flights to Colombia.
To resolve the current impasse, VWS has decided to commission a short-term
investigation into the problems that have arisen and to find a sustainable
solution for ambulance flights between Curacao, Aruba, St. Maarten and the
Caribbean Netherlands.
