Scandinavian MediCopter has signed a five-year deal with Stockholm City Council to operate two medically equipped Eurocopter EC145 T2. The term will start in December 2017 and has a two-year option to extend.

The MediCopter will operate within the Scandinavian Air Ambulance (SAA) remit. The SAA has bases that are spread across Sweden and Finland and is one of Scandinavia’s largest air ambulance company.

The operation has two licenses or air operator certificates. For helicopter operations, it instructs Scandinavian MediCopter and for the airplane operations it is Scandinavian AirAmbulance. The organisation operates nine helicopters and eight fixed-wing aircraft and has headquarters in Östersund, Sweden.
