With airfields in four countries at Ramstein AB, Germany, Lajes Field, Portugal, Morón AB, Spain, and Chièvres AB, Belgium, the 86th Airlift Wing and Ramstein serve as the “Global Gateway” to Europe and beyond. We operate key power projection platforms critical to global operations.
As the aeromedical evacuation center for U.S. Africa Command, U.S. Central Command, and U.S. European Command, the AE team at Ramstein administers more than 97% of all COVID-19 patient movements for the Department of Defense!
The Airmen of Ramstein work daily to strengthen and leverage partnerships within our Air Force and with our joint and international partners. The 86th Airlift Wing trains and works with longstanding NATO and European partners while developing new partners in Africa.
