Bangkok, January 23, 2017) – Asia Air Ambulance, a Bangkok, Thailand-based international medical repatriation service, has formed a strategic alliance with US-based Commercial Medical Escorts (CME). The agreement will see the two companies work together to better provide CME’s assistance clients with medical escort services on commercial flights throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
“Asia Air Ambulance is a accredited by EURAMI medical escort service provider with years of experience transporting patients safely to and from destinations throughout the region,” said Toranit Sripal, managing partner of Asia Air Ambulance. “Our medical escort personnel are fully licensed and well acquainted with the various regulations and customs that exist in the region. We look forward to working with CME to provide travellers with the highest standard of care.”
From its head office in Boca Raton, Florida, CME provides medical escort, commercial stretcher and repatriation assistance services worldwide. CME’s staff of fully licensed medical escorts includes physicians, registered nurses and paramedics who are assigned to each escort case depending on the client’s individual needs. The company also handles all medical clearances, equipment needs and travel details with the airline and helps to arrange admission for the client at the receiving medical facility.
“Transporting assistance clients to and from destinations where the language, customs and procedures may be unfamiliar can be challenging,” said Blake Yturralde, president of CME. “Having a working relationship with an experienced, fully accredited medical escort provider based in Asia will help expedite transfers for our clients throughout the region. We look forward to working with Asia Air Ambulance and are happy to provide our clients with the highest standard of care and service wherever they travel in the world.”
