Virgin America Airline Debuts With MedAire Services

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MedAire Inc. (ASX: MDE), a global provider of remote medical education, expertise and equipment, recently announced that the start-up, low-cost airline, Virgin America, will add MedAire's 24/7 MedLink Global Response Service and life-saving medical kits to its already impressive list of amenities.

Virgin America's fleet of 10 Airbus 320-family of planes will be equipped with life-saving medical kits designed to help crewmembers manage medical situations which may occur in the aviation environment. Crewmembers will have access to MedAire's MedLink 24/7 Global Response Center, connecting flight attendants and pilots with board-certified emergency room physicians working in a level-one trauma center in Phoenix, Ariz. The three-year contract also includes MedAire's world class training programs for Virgin America's crewmembers, covering common in-flight illness, altitude physiology, equipment, oxygen systems and CPR/AED instruction.

"It speaks volumes that a new airline, from inception, would place such emphasis on the safety of its passengers and crew," said Robin Pearson, MedAire director, commercial aviation. "This agreement illustrates Virgin America's true commitment to the customer -- not only focusing on the visual and tactile amenities that passengers enjoy, but also on their health and safety."

"With MedAire as a partner, Virgin America can better deliver comfort, care and peace of mind to ill guests," added Peter Wilander, Virgin America Airlines, director of inflight and catering. "This partnership will help us respond effectively and efficiently to all of our guest's health needs."
