German air ambulance specialist and vvip jet operator FAI (Flight Ambulance International) rent-a-jet AG has settled on Al Bateen Executive airport as its preferred stop-over airport in the Middle East region.
Operated by Abu Dhabi Airports Company, the airport will have two fully dedicated air ambulance aircraft, a Learjet 60 and Challenger 604, based at its facilities and served by German medical teams.
FAI selected Al Bateen due to its ability to serve increasing client demand from the region, the Far East and Asia. Yousif Hassan Al Hammadi, general manager, says: “With its world class vip services, 24-hour operational schedule and close proximity to leading medical facilities in the heart of Abu Dhabi, Al Bateen is the ideal stop-over for FAI's medical service.”
Earlier this year it hosted the Abu Dhabi Air Expo 2013 and reports that the total value of sales reached in excess of AED three billion, with 13,000 visitors and more than 160 exhibitors in attendance.
Headquartered in Nuremburg, FAI is a global leader in medical evacuation and transport. It also operates one of Europe's largest fleets of business jets, and one of the world's largest Learjet fleets. Aircraft management and CAMO services are available to aircraft owners within the UAE.
