A second air ambulance service is set to receive a boost from Harrods Aviation and London Luton Airport (LLA).

Harrods Aviation is proud to announce that they have agreed to waive all parking and handling charges for the Children’s Air Ambulance while London Luton Airport has agreed to supply fuel free of charge as well as offering to waive all landing fees. The same arrangement was offered to Herts and Essex Air Ambulance last year.

The Children’s Air Ambulance (TCAA) charity is an aero medical transfer service whose specialist facilities are so advanced it can provide intensive care in the air for critically ill babies and children up to the age of 18 while transferring them from local hospitals to specialist paediatric and neonatal treatment centres.

Will Holroyd, Sales and Marketing Director at Harrods Aviation Ltd said, ‘We are proud to be supporting such a worthy cause by waiving these costs. It means that whenever the air ambulance are operating in the area, they can be assured of receiving immediate and full support on the ground from Harrods Aviation.’

Director of Operations at Children’s Air Ambulance Richard Clayton said, ‘We’re extremely grateful for the support from LLA and Harrods Aviation. This generosity enables us to direct more of our public donations to the front line service of helping NHS specialist transport teams, involved in paediatric and neonatal transfers, to keep hope alive for these priceless patients’.
