Since its beginnings in the early 1970s, air transport in neonatal medicine has registered significant growth, recognition and acceptance to assume an increasingly major role in today's dynamic healthcare milieu. In this context, our paper briefly reviews and discusses selected primary concerns relative to personnel, vehicle selection, equipment, safety, administration and basic flight physiology. With the rapid expansion of neonatal air transport services, attention should continue to be directed towards providing safe, cost-effective, expedient and quality health care to the neonate.
