AirMed provides medevac to international group
AirMed is already accredited by the European Aeromedical Institute (EURAMI) and the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS). It is adding International Assistance Group to the list.
AirMed International's fleet of 14 aircraft includes King Airs, Learjets and longer-range Hawker and Challenger aircraft.

AirMed International, based in Birmingham, Alabama, has joined the International Assistance Group (IAG) as an accredited service provider. Paris-based IAG is the world's largest alliance of independent assistance companies and accredited providers covering a wide range of travel services to include roadside, medical, travel assistance and security services.

“Nobody plans on having problems abroad. But it is best to be prepared, especially during the ongoing pandemic,” says Denise Treadwell, president of AirMed International. “If you run into difficulties on your next trip, IAG and AirMed are perfectly positioned to help when a medical emergency arises. As the Coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc on the world, we have adjusted our procedures and practices to meet clients' evolving requirements.”

AirMed International operates a fleet of medically equipped jets and turboprops customised to undertake medical missions all over the world. Having flown more than 18,000 missions in 150 countries on six continents, the organisation offers professional medical care and bedside-to-bedside transportation with broadly experienced air medical crews.

“Joining IAG is more than adding our resources and capabilities to the alliance,” says Brandon Bates, senior director of global strategy and partner relations. “With AirMed having worked for several IAG partners, we recognise IAG as a valuable forum for sharing best practices, discussing challenging situations and forming important relationships to benefit travellers in medical distress.”

AirMed International's fleet of 14 aircraft includes King Airs, Learjets and longer-range Hawker and Challenger jets, which also provide additional space for more equipment and additional medical crew. An experienced flight planning team maximises AirMed's worldwide air operations. Complicated routings and permissions are assessed quickly, ensuring prompt dispatch and accurate pricing quotes.

AirMed is accredited by the European Aeromedical Institute (EURAMI) and the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS). It swiftly accesses expert knowledge in the air ambulance environment for an extensive range of requirements from assistance company medical teams worldwide, including NICU, ECMO, cardiac and trauma.
