Plane Facts: Beneficial To Have Medics Full-Time In Super Jets

Rita Mody, who is a committee member of the Royal College of Nurses' In-flight Nurses Association, has provided a valuable insight during the upcoming production// of super jumbo jets. She said it was important to have a member of medical staff on every flight, to ensure immediate care to those who fall ill.

The largest passenger plane in the world, the Airbus A380, is capable of carrying nearly 840 passengers. Statistics show that the frequency of such requirements arise almost with every one in 1,400 passengers have had an on-board medical emergency ,out of which 8% of those incidents have needed an unspecified landing.

Virgin Atlantic, which is due to commission the A 380 into service, in 2009, is already equipping its staff with threadbare medical training. A spokeswoman for the airline said “Our cabin crew is trained to an extremely high standard and they have extensive medical training. We have a very high standard of equipment on board and we also have Medilink as our back-up, who we can phone through to for medical advice. There would not be that many more passengers on board the A380 than on a Boeing 747, which carries 451 passengers.”
