MedAire and Air Charter Scotland announce partnership


Air Charter Scotland is pleased to announce its partnership with MedAire, an International SOS company and supplier of aviation travel risk management services. MedAire will provide Air Charter Scotland with global travel risk management solutions for its crew and passengers, in flight and on the ground.

“MedAire provides unparalleled mission support for any operation. The world has become an ever more uncertain place, and the nature of our business, coupled with the addition of two Legacy 650s to our Worldwide AOC requires that we perform flights to destinations all over the world, often with very short notice to remote locations,” said Derek Thomson, ground operations director of Air Charter Scotland.

“In order for us to continue offering our consistent level of service and strong sense of duty-of-care, it is imperative that we have the right resource at our disposal to make appropriate decisions on safety and risk management so that we may protect our passengers, crew and aircraft.”

MedAire will provide Air Charter Scotland with inflight and on-the-ground medical support and advice, as well as the most up-to-date aviation security assistance solution supported by a 24/7 aviation security team with a global network of regional experts. MedAire’s aviation expertise will allow Air Charter Scotland to monitor and mitigate the potential risks for any flight, and will include access to travel risk management tools such as MedAire’s Trip Ready App and online portal.

“Air Charter Scotland passengers and crew will receive peace of mind that health, security and logistics expertise is available 24/7 and that they may call as often as they wish, wherever they travel,” commented Steven Bates, MD Europe, MedAire. “We look forward to providing outstanding service to the Air Charter Scotland operation and to our long and successful partnership.”
