Medical kits and refurbishment

MedAire’s 35 plus years of providing ground-based medical assistance to airlines tell us we are not building kits for the “if,” we are building them for the “when.” We have assisted airlines with more than 300,000 in-flight medical events. We know what happens in flight, and use that information to equip you and your crew. Carrying the right medications and diagnostic equipment onboard your fleet plays a significant role in avoiding costly diversions.
