He added that Vanuatu and the South Pacific now have an international standard aero Medical retrieval service that is capable of Domestic medivacs and international ability to Brisbane, Sydney, Auckland, New Caledonia, Fiji and Solomon Islands at an international standard comparable to anywhere in the world.

The milestone was achieved through the professional support and commitment of the Promedical, Medepole, Airworx and Air Taxi.
