AirMed International details that the Nextant 400XTi is an improved version of the Beechjet 400, with longer range medical transport, quieter and improved engine efficiency and more modern cockpit avionics. "The Nextant 400XTi has increased performance that adds to AirMed International's capabilities in the region. It will join a Beechjet and two Beechcraft King Airs at the San Antonio location," said AirMed International President Denise Treadwell.
Treadwell added that the new jet will enable the company to build on its footprint, as well as providing improved patient services to many of the major hospitals in the region, including CHIRSTUS Health, which the air medical transport company has partnered with.
Cris Daskevich, CHRISTUS Health SVP of Maternal Services and CEO of The Children's Hospital of San Antonio, said: “Our focus is to extend the absolute best care possible to our paediatric patients throughout our CHRISTUS Health ministries in Texas, Louisiana, New Mexico and both Central and South America. For our smallest patients, who often have critical needs, time is a critical resource. This partnership with AirMed will allow us to provide care to our paediatric patients quickly in their time of need."
