Annual reports

The 2019 – 2020 financial year has been a significant 12 months for LifeFlight.

Through the devastation of a global pandemic, the organisation has remained united and has continued to provide world-class aeromedical care to those in need, across Queensland and around the world. That is an achievement, of which the organisation is extremely proud.

Over the past financial year, our internal teams have worked hard alongside industry and government partners, to secure new aircraft and expand the organisation’s capability. These efforts enable LifeFlight to have the diversity to adapt to the ever-changing and complex environment of aeromedical operations.
