Pivotel to keep LifeFlight connected as they save lives


Queensland based critical communication solutions provider Pivotel has today announced the renewal of its partnership with LifeFlight Australia, a world leader in aeromedical care.

LifeFlight Australia, headquartered in Brisbane, operates an advanced fleet of helicopters and Air Ambulance jets, with the core purpose of saving lives and serving the community. LifeFlight’s services include emergency response, critical medical care and hospital airlifts for seriously ill and injured people.

The renewed partnership will see Pivotel deploy a range of its satellite-connected communication solutions and services in nine aircraft operated by the not-for-profit organisation, as well as an additional seven services that will allow the rescue crews of LifeFlight to remain connected, no matter where their mission takes them.

Pivotel CEO, Peter Bolger said: “Pivotel is pleased to extend its association with LifeFlight Australia, which can trace its roots back to 2017. We’re proud to assist LifeFlight in the delivery of their critical services, often to people located in very remote parts of the state. Pivotel is a natural partner for LifeFlight, we have developed communication solutions that allow people to communicate all over the country, and we look forward to seeing LifeFlight utilise our technology to help save lives.”

LifeFlight Australia General Manager Operations, Brian Guthrie said: “LifeFlight makes a difference to the lives of thousands of people each year. In 2021, the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue community helicopters, Air Ambulance jets and Critical Care doctors came to the aid of 6,846 people. From the outback to the ocean, LifeFlight Australia provides a blanket of care for Queensland families 24/7, 365 days a year. Communication is crucial to our daily operations and with Pivotel’s support we will ensure that we can communicate when and where we need to, no matter where we are.”
