Royal Jet grows Medevac services to meet soaring demand

Known principally for providing unparalleled luxury private jet charter services in the Middle East, Royal Jet has expanded into Medevac services in recent years. As demand continues to increase, Breaking Travel News takes a closer look.

Royal Jet has enhanced its capability to meet the steady growth in demand for Medevac services. Following a significant increase in missions in 2011, the company has taken substantial steps to boost its capacity in the field. 

“Being one of only a few Medevac-operators worldwide that cover the full range of cabin sizes, Royal Jet has clearly established its leadership role in the air ambulance market,” said Royal Jet president Shane O’Hare. “More importantly, the fact Royal Jet owns its own fleet of aircraft, which can be easily and readily converted into air ambulances based on requirement, as well as being manned and operated by our very own team of highly trained medical professionals, means we provide the market with a high level of confidence about our reliability and dependability to undertake such tasks.”

All of Royal Jet’s Air Ambulances are equipped with the most advanced onboard medical equipment, including an Intensive Care Unit (ICU), ventilators, and even incubators for neo-natal requirements. Manned and operated by specially-trained and experienced in-house medical teams (consisting of a doctor and a paramedic), Royal Jet’s Medevac missions provide bed-to-bed service.

“Having performed over 1,310 missions, Royal Jet continues to be the most successful Medevac operator with strong year-on-year growth and with the largest number of patient transfers,” added O’Hare.

While most of Royal Jet’s Medevac missions begin or end in the UAE, it has also carried out a number of operations from or to many cities across the Middle East, Europe, Africa and America. Additionally, Royal Jet has likewise conducted a significant number of Medevac missions from high risk areas such as Iraq and Afghanistan. The increasing demand from people who prefer to travel overseas for specialised medical procedures are among those Royal Jet caters to, as the company offers patients the flexibility of selecting whatever timings and service suit them.

Since inception, Royal Jet’s Medevac service has been created with an objective of transporting patients with any type of condition, including those who may be critically ill and require the utmost medical support and attention.

Its industry-leading Medevac service is founded on the recognition of the complex process of organising each mission, with a view that all Medevac missions are a new challenge and not simply the provision of an aircraft for a patient’s travel needs.

World Travel Awards

In other news, Royal Jet has raised the bar of service excellence in the private jet charter industry, winning an unprecedented fifth consecutive World’s Leading Private Jet Charter title at the prestigious   World Travel Awards Grand Final.

At a glittering ceremony at the Katara Cultural Village in Doha, Qatar, Royal Jet chief Shane O’Hare accepted the record-breaking award. He enthused: “To receive such an award for the fifth time in a row is indeed a rare achievement. The perseverance and commitment of Royal Jet and its extremely dedicated team of professionals, guided by the wisdom and full support of the members of our board of directors led by Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, have enabled us to deliver nothing but the best and most luxurious global private jet charter service to be able to accomplish this feat.”

Royal Jet’s full commitment to delivering only the best-in-class service has its wide-range of product offering all serving to complement its core business of providing unparalleled luxury private jet charter. Such business model has made the Royal Jet brand a cut above the rest and always a step ahead within the industry.
