US-based Medway Air Ambulance has expanded its fixed-wing fleet to meet the increasing demand for domestic and international air medical transport solutions with the induction of three Learjet 45 aircraft.
Each Learjet 45 will be staffed with two pilots and two Critical Care clinicians and is equipped with onboard ICU capabilities. The Learjet 45 was selected due to its large cabin size to accommodate Medway’s specialized neonatal transport equipment.
Supporting an increase in air medical transports
The acquisition of the Learjet 45s is intended to fulfil an anticipated increase in air medical transports for injured or ill travelers. The air ambulance has partnered with travel assistance insurance plans to help patients with medevacs back to the US and Canada from the Caribbean, Mexico, and South America.
Matt Kinney, Medway Vice President of Flight Operations, commented: “We have invested in the aircraft, equipment, and personnel to expand our reach and help more patients. With greater flight capacity, we can increase patient access to specialty care, rehabilitation facilities, and children’s hospitals across the country.”
