Wheels Up, the company that offers private air transportation on Beechcraft King Air 350i and Citation Excel/XLS aircraft, said it has partnered with a worldwide air ambulance jet company, AirMed International. The agreement starts Dec. 1 and offers “complimentary access to private transport” on AirMed International’s medical jets for Wheels Up members and their guests.
“Our members’ safety and well-being is our number one priority,” said Wheels Up Founder and CEO Kenny Dichter. “Partnering with AirMed International, a leading air medical service, ensures Wheels Up members have access to immediate medical transport with the highest level of patient care when they need to get home to their trusted physicians.”
AirMed International has agreements with many hospitals around the world.
The AirMed program is available to Wheels Up members and passengers listed on the trip itinerary who need medical transport within 10 days of a scheduled flight. “The service will provide relocation to the hospital of choice for patients in stable condition who become hospitalized more than 150 miles from their home, within the Wheels Up footprint that covers the U.S., parts of the Caribbean, northern Mexico, and southeastern Canada,” the companies explained in a joint press release.
