Annual Report 2023

Take a look back with us at the past Rega year and find out what Rega is doing to further improve air rescue in Switzerland.

Well equipped for the future

Dear reader

Last year, Rega's Operations Center once again organised more than 20,000 missions and came to the aid of 14,000 people in distress. This cannot be taken for granted in these troubled times, when just a few hours' flight away, thousands of people are dying, living in diffcult conditions or fleeing from their homes.

What is happening around us serves as a reminder of how privileged we are in Switzerland – not just in terms of safety and stability, but also health and prosperity. For us at Rega, this privilege motivates us again and again to give our very best each day and to fulfil our core task with pride: helping people in an emergency.

For this to succeed, in addition to a wealth of expertise, a top infrastructure and the Rega pioneering spirit, we need one thing above all: a solid financial foundation. This is the most important prerequisite for operating air rescue services at the highest level for the benefit of the Swiss population without focusing on financial gain.

This financial basis continues to remain firm – thanks to our more than 3.6 million patrons. It is their support that makes Rega what it is today: an air rescue organisation that has been setting standards in Switzerland and all over the world for over 70 years.

Our goal remains unchanged in 2024: together with our partners, to ensure that the Swiss population and our patrons at home and abroad can rely on receiving swift, professional medical assistance by air. Around the clock, 365 days a year.

We would like to thank you most sincerely for your invaluable support.
