Royal Med, the international aero medical evacuation and repatriation services subsidiary of Royal Jet, has once more contracted with the Abu Dhabi Health Authority to supply medevac services, after pitching in a tender process open to other private charter air services companies.

The news comes at a time when Royal Med has seen bookings for its medevac operations jump by around 40% over the past year, to destinations as diverse as Europe, the Far-East, the Indian subcontinent, the US and other destinations within the Middle East.

The company, which was launched in May 2003 under the leadership of HE Sheikh Hamdan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Chairman of Royal Jet, was the Middle Easts first licensed, commercial medevac provider.

To date over 1000 patients have been transferred by the company. The Royal Med team consists of 15 paramedics and intensive care nurses, as well as 10 doctors and consultants who specialise in neo-natal, paediatric and adult clinical disciplines. Its aircraft, which are equipped with intensive care facilities, are also fitted with a ventilator, an electrocardiogram and a neo-natal transport incubator.

Royal Med is continuing to see a healthy rise in new business, despite new competitors entering the market, Royal Jets President & CEO Shane OHare said, and this reaffirmation from the Abu Dhabi Health Authority of their confidence in our services follows the high number of successful missions we have carried out on their behalf.

We are one of the preferred providers for the armed forces, government health authorities and a number of medical insurance companies, but we are also signing up yet more private individuals, hospitals and embassies, who appreciate the fact that we can offer the most advanced management in transporting patients requiring international medical evacuation to most destinations worldwide with the minimum of fuss and with a very rapid reaction time.
