Luxembourg Air Rescue (LAR), which also operates as European Air Ambulance, has announced that it will be acquiring another Learjet 45XR. The company recently sold a Learjet 35A, so the new jet, which is the fourth of its kind that the service owns, will be a direct replacement. The acquisition is part of a larger fleet restructuring that LAR began in 2011. It hopes that the last remaining Learjet 35A will be phased out by the middle of next year.
LAR said that the new LearJet 45XR will be equipped for patient transport, with a fully and easily adjustable interior. In its standard configuration, the cabin has space for two patients and four other passengers or crew members. It can also be used in a single-stretcher configuration for the transport of intensive care patients. The space also allows for a secondary crew on long flights.
LAR said that this new plane will help it continue to provide the ‘best possible patient care’.
