On Saturday the Westpac Air Ambulance flew two separate patients across six different locations within New Zealand.
The first patient was a repeat flight from Auckland to Whakatane for a 6-month-old baby girl and Mum following a sleep study at Auckland Hospital.
This was the fourth time the crew have transported Mum and baby to Auckland from Whakatane for care.
The second patient was a 32-year-old female and partner flown from New Plymouth to Tauranga.
The Westpac Air Ambulance team first picked her up on the 24th from Tauranga and transported her to New Plymouth due to threatened pre-term labor.
The team was able to pick her and her partner up again today along with midwife and take them home, her condition now stable having received care in New Plymouth.
