Comlux Delivers Fleetwide MedAire Medical Services to Passengers and Crew

( BW)(MEDAIRE)(.) Comlux Delivers Fleetwide MedAire Medical Services to Passengers and Crew

Charter Customers Will Reap Same Medical Service as Most Airline Passengers

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, an International 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 card.

As Comlux continues to add aircraft to its fleet, passengers and crew will automatically be covered by the MedAire medical program.
