MedAire Inc., a global provider of remote medical education, expertise and equipment, recently announced that US based Spirit Airlines will add MedAire’s 24/7 MedLink Global Response Services to its entire fleet. (Spirit Airlines Inc. is the largest Ultra Low-Cost Carrier in the US, Latin America and the Caribbean). MedLink will provide flight attendants and pilots with a one-call solution for in-flight medical situations, through board-certified physicians working at a level-one trauma center in Phoenix, Arizona. As part of the three-year agreement, crew members on-board Spirit’s fleet of 36 aircraft will have 24-hour access to MedLink from anywhere around the world, using the aircraft’s existing communications system. MedLink physicians, who have extensive experience in the field of aviation-specific medicine, manage thousands of medical emergencies every year.
