In 2017, Rega helped an average of 29 patients per day

In 2017, Rega helped an average of 29 patients per day

Last year, the operational crews of Swiss Air-Rescue Rega came to the aid of an average of 29 patients per day. With a total of 15,958 missions, Rega was in demand more than ever before – both at home and abroad. This figure is equivalent to on average one mission every 33 minutes.


Rescuing in all weathers: FOCA grants Rega a special authorisation

A breakthrough for Rega on the road to realising its vision of all-weather rescue: the Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA) has granted the air-rescue organisation a special authorisation to use key intersections of the so-called Low Flight Network around the clock with effect from 23 December 2017. Rega estimates that with this new regulation around 300 additional patients per year will be able to benefit from urgently needed medical assistance by air.


Help where help is needed

Rega provides emergency medical assistance by air wherever it is needed. Sometimes, however, it is not medical assistance, but the empathy, improvisation skills and compassion of the Rega staff that are at the forefront of their actions. We share with you three incidents that have deeply moved us. They show that help can take many forms.
