VIP aircraft charter operator and management group GainJet has established a base at London Stansted to provide an on-demand air ambulance operation, primarily targeting the UK and western Europe.

GainJet will provide the service using one of the group's Challenger 604 aircraft registered under the Irish AOC of its subsidiary, GainJet Ireland. The aircraft is configured with a state-of-the-art medical stretcher system and can accommodate up to six additional family members, as well as the medical staff. The aircraft will be based full-time at Inflite Jet Centre, a Stansted-based FBO, and has a dedicated team of UK medical professionals and crew, allowing the company to be on call to provide the service.

“Our mission is to provide a reliable medevac service based in London that is readily available to serve the European market. We have been working non-stop over the past six months establishing this operation, training the dedicated staff, and putting everything in place to ensure we can provide a smooth medevac service,” explains GainJet Ireland CEO Captain Dimitrios Kehayas.

This is the second medevac base for GainJet. Its original base in Kuwait still operates with another Challenger 604. GainJet group CEO, Captain Ramsey Shaban, says: “We have a long-term mission to fully establish our medevac operation to cover the needs of our clients within our market territory.

“Our Kuwait base is fully functioning so we felt confident in expanding this service further. We noticed a lack of long range medevac aircraft in the UK and found London Stansted to be an ideal base for this operation. The next step for us is to set up a medevac base in Kigali, Rwanda, to serve the African market, which does not have easy access to reliable, long range medevac aircraft.”
