ACCESS Air Ambulance Service Area

Our ACCESS team currently holds the Government of the Northwest Territories contract to provide safe, efficient, cost effective, dedicated, uninterrupted, around-the-clock professional Air Ambulance services in the Northwest Territories. 

Servicing 33 communities from two bases, Yellowknife and Inuvik, with four dedicated aircraft, one King Air 200GT and 3 King Air 250’s as well as providing specialized and contingency back-up capacity aircraft.

Our teams transport more than 1,600 patients annually within the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. Annually, we transfer over 500 patients from Northern Canada to the south, generally to receiving facilities within the Edmonton area. Our Flight Crews are among the most experienced in the industry and our Air Medical Crew teams are staffed at a CCT level, though our missions range from CCT to repatriation.

As individual companies, our roots are in the Canada’s North. Collectively we have been the AirAmbulance lifeline for residents and workers in some of the most extreme environments on the planet. Our contracts have ranged from dedicated, turnkey aviation and medical solutions to providing emergency capacity in case of excessive Air Ambulance demand as well as ad hoc medical charters prior to the advent of dedicated contracts in the NWT to Search and Rescue missions in locations where our specialized knowledge, expertise and experience are quite literally unmatched.
