The air ambulance service of Royal Jet, the Abu Dhabi-based international private jet operatorchaired by His Excellency Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, has reported its busiest-ever year in 2012 for medical evacuation(Medevac) missions - up by 10% over another record year in 2011.
"Our medical evacuation service has earned a reputation of being dependable and trustworthy," said Shane O'Hare, President and CEO of Royal Jet. "Our service goes well beyond providing air ambulances, medical teams and equipment.
"We provide medical escorts for patients travelling by commercial airline to ensure a seamless, expert bed-to-bed service. We arrange private road ambulance and helicopter transport and hospital appointments anywhere in the world and organize travel on behalf of the patient's family. Just as we do with our luxury jet charters, we aim to offer our Medevac clients a quality of service that is second to none."
Royal Jet operates two dedicated Medevac aircraft, a Gulfstream G300 and a Learjet 60, which are supported as required by any of its fleet of six Boeing Business Jets.O'Hare added that he is looking at fleet expansion to meet the rising demand for Medevac support.
"Our air ambulances are equipped to the highest medical standards. This includes intravenous infusion pumps, arterial blood gas monitors, defibrillators, ventilators, oxygen systems, and monitoring for blood pressure and electrolytes," explained O'Hare. "Our team specializes in all forms of critical care, emergency care and anesthesia. They are experienced in neonatal and pediatric medicine, cardiac conditions, transplant candidates andrecipients, patients using ventilators and those with head or spinal injuries."
In the past few years Royal Jet's medevac division has handled missions in the most challenging of situations across community, political and government sectors from around the world and nearer home in the GCC.
O'Hare said, "We are always on standby to fly people in need of emergency medical treatment anywhere in the world and we are proud to be able to respond immediately to the urgent needs of the UAE. Our own team of specialist doctors is supported by a fabulous operations unit that enables us to react to emergencies at very short notice."
It will now mark its contribution to the medical evacuation sector in 2012 by supporting the 3rd ICMM Pan Arab Regional Working Group Conference on Military Medicine as a silver sponsor from 9-13 December in Abu Dhabi.
