Comlux aircraft charter VIP passengers and crew will have
round-the-clock access to specialised medical care—both in flight and on
the ground—thanks to a new agreement between Comlux
The Aviation Group, and MedAire,
SOS company. Effective 1 January, 2011, Comlux will offer a
standard, fleet-wide MedAire medical offering, including 24/7 access to
emergency care doctors, onboard medical kits and aviation medical
training for 125 pilots and flight attendants.
“As a premium brand in the charter market, Comlux is further defining
its safety standards for customers and crew,” says Grant Jeffery,
MedAire CEO. “Their investment in medical care on board all Comlux
aircraft aligns with global standards provided by MedAire on leading
commercial airlines around the globe.”
MedAire’s regulatory compliant crew medical training and onboard medical
equipment will help Comlux leverage best practices for medical safety
and meet the company’s Safety Management System requirements.
“Every year our Comlux crew will be taught by medical professionals with
in-flight medical experience through the Management
of In-flight Illness & Injury program. MedAire’s initial and
recurrent courses will ensure we’re delivering the highest standard of
medical care—giving our crew the confidence, knowledge and resources to
prepare for and manage unexpected medical situations,” says Daniel
Staub, Comlux’s Head of In-flight Product and Services.
During unexpected situations, crew have 24/7 access to emergency care
doctors via MedAire’s MedLink
Global Response Center. MedLink doctors, who manage more than 18,000
in-flight medical cases a year, will remotely assess the health of the
passenger or crewmember and make medical recommendations using
medications and supplies from the onboard Aircraft
First Aid Kit or Emergency
Medical Kit. On the ground, Comlux crew and VIP travelers who are at
their destination will also have access to MedAire’s 24/7 medical and
travel advice and assistance via a co-branded Comlux/MedAire membership
As Comlux continues to add aircraft to its fleet, passengers and crew
will automatically be covered by the MedAire medical program.
