Bond Launches New Service For Sick or Injured Offshore Workers


Bond Offshore Helicopters has launched a new service that allows sick or injured passengers, now including those who can’t wear a lifejacket, to be brought back to shore by helicopter.

Bond, December 09, 2015 - Bond Offshore Helicopters has launched a new service that allows sick or injured passengers, including those who can’t wear a lifejacket or survival suit, to be brought back to shore by helicopter.

Previously people who were too ill to fly either had to wait offshore until they were better or their condition deteriorated enough to warrant an airlift from the Search and Rescue service, or they had to be transferred by boat.

Under the new clearance Bond can now provide specialist support to these passengers to bring them back to shore safely and swiftly on a helicopter.

Bond’s Director of Operations, Captain Rob Dyas, said: “This new service provides an important middle ground for those passengers who may be injured or unwell but who do not qualify for the Search and Rescue services reserved for those with life-threatening conditions.
“With the expert help of our Clinical Advisor and with our experienced crews acting as escorts we can now transfer these passengers back to shore, providing a simple set of requirements can be met.”

The new service is available for offshore flights from all Bond’s UK bases.
