About Us

AAR was started by its founders Bengt Beckmann and his wife Maryjka as Africa Air Rescue Company. From a small business with specialty in evacuation of medical and accident casualties, both by road and air, AAR is now the leading private healthcare firm in East Africa boasting of over 100, 000 in membership.

Since then, our company's name has changed more than once, but we have always retained our values of quality, innovation and excellence. Values that will still remain our pillars in years to come and help achieve our aim of becoming a one-stop healthcare service provider in the continent in the future.

We are now marking 30 years of a long, robust history in Kenya since our inception in 1984. With this comes the satisfaction of a dream-lived-on as envisioned by the founders.
