The helicopter company Air Zermatt provides transport and rescue services for the Zermatt-Matterhorn destination. It also offers all kinds of adventures for visitors – such as sightseeing flights around the Matterhorn.
Air Zermatt was founded in 1965. Its fleet includes ultra-modern helicopters, individually equipped according to use. Modern mountain rescue owes its existence to Air Zermatt. Equipment and techniques such as longline (rescues from cliff faces) and tripod (rescues from glacier crevasses) were developed and refined here.
