(Bangkok, February 25, 2016) – Asia Air Ambulance, a Bangkok-based subsidiary of Fox Flight Inc., a Canadian-owned company specializing in international medical repatriation services, was recently accredited by the European Aeromedical Institute (EURAMI). The accreditation followed an exhaustive audit process of Asia Air Ambulance’s medical and flight procedures and applies to the company’s international fixed-wing operations in the Adult Critical Care category, as well as to its Commercial Escort services.
“Fox Flight takes great pride in the systems and procedures we have developed over 19 years in the international medical repatriation business, and we work hard to maintain the highest standards of patient care and customer service wherever we operate around the world,” said David Fox, president of Fox Flight Inc. “EURAMI is one of the most respected accreditation organizations in the aeromedical industry, so it is very gratifying to have them confirm that our Asia Air Ambulance subsidiary meets those same exacting standards.”
Based in Brussels, Belgium, EURAMI provides accreditation for aeromedical transfer services operating throughout Europe and the world via both fixed-wing and rotor aircraft. The goal of the organization is to promote safe, ethical and quality healthcare and training practices by harmonizing and generalizing European and international standards in aeromedical services. In order to achieve EURAMI accreditation, providers must undergo an extensive analysis of their procedures related to patient care, daily operations, flight and patient documentation, staff training and ongoing aircraft maintenance. By maintaining strict accreditation standards for its member companies, EURAMI helps to promote excellence in aeromedical services worldwide. Fox Flight has held EURAMI accreditation since 2009.
