Helipro (Fiji) Limited is a Fijian privately owned and entirely self-funded emergency and medical services provider throughout Fiji and its South Pacific island neighbours.

The company is based in Suva at the Nausori International Airport. Helipro also has an administration, management and coordination office in the hospital precinct in Suva itself.

The company provides a complete end to end and comprehensive emergency 24/7/365 service to tourists, communities and expatriates with its present fleet comprising of its own fully equipped Air Ambulance Helicopter (the only one in the South Pacific Islands) an equally fully equipped Air Ambulance Jet and its own ambulance.

A dedicated team of fifteen local and international management, aviation and medical professionals make up the growing Helipro team. Over half of the team are Fijian.

Helipro is now offering emergency medical evacuations throughout the Pacific – simply call them in Fiji and they will respond immediately.

Helipro has a ‘24/7/365’ emergency number (answered in three rings or less anytime day or night) as well as Fiji’s first dedicated Fijian flight nurse; Fiji’s first dedicated flight paramedics; Fiji’s first paramedic; Fiji’s first dedicated air ambulance helicopter; Fiji’s first dedicated air ambulance jet; and complete case management from receipt of the call including, regular real-time reporting, hospitalisation administration, care of patient support personnel, medical handover, liaising with overseas travel insurance companies, keeping families advised and repatriation overseas for patients if required – ‘one call and we do it all.”

The company’s aim is simply to provide the best possible emergency services and pre-hospital care as professionally, quickly and efficiently as possible to the people and visitors of Fiji and the South Pacific Islands.

Helipro is continually expanding its service offering and footprint thus assisting the tourism industry in ensuring the Pacific is a tourism destination where rapid and complete medical care is readily and easily obtainable.
