The Rega Centre – Rega’s headquarters at Zurich Airport
The heart of the organisation, Swiss-Air Rescue Rega, is the Rega Centre, which is situated to the north-east of Zurich-Kloten Airport and has direct access to the aircraft runways. The building comprises a hangar accommodating the three ambulance jets, the maintenance works for the helicopters and air-ambulances, the Operations Centre, recreation rooms for flight staff on stand-by duty, administrative offices, training and lecture rooms, a cafeteria for the approx. 150 members of staff and a large materials store.
While the ambulance jets take off directly from the Rega Centre every day to destinations all over the globe, the rescue helicopters only come back to the Rega Centre for major maintenance work and servicing. Rescue missions in the Zurich region are carried out from Rega’s Zurich base in the nearby suburb of Dübendorf.
