FAI Air Ambulance receives Outstanding Sector Leadership and Growth Award

FAI’s Air Ambulance Division has been awarded the ‘Outstanding Sector Leadership and Growth Award’ in the Air Ambulance category at the MEA Business Achievement Awards 2024 in Dubai.

FAI’s Dubai-based team members accepted the award from Kenneth Mitchen, Executive Director and Publisher, Creative Middle East Media at a prestigious ceremony and gala dinner held at the Ritz Carlton JBR on June 25th.

Determined by a panel of industry experts, the MEA Business Achievement Awards recognise and celebrate the most innovative and successful businesses and leaders across the Middle East and Africa.

This latest award is testament to FAI Air Ambulance’s achievements in the Middle East, most notably its recent Commercial Airline Medical Escort (CAME) accreditation from the European Aeromedical Institute (EURAMI) for its Dubai-based medical escort service.

This followed FAI’s accreditation as an approved EURAMI provider in early 2023.

The CAME endorsement accredits aero-medical providers performing patient transfers, like FAI, to transport patients seated in the cabin or on a designated stretcher.

FAI is the first private company in the GCC with EURAMI CAME accreditation and the only European fixed-wing operator to receive both the CAME accreditation and the EURAMI-approved provider accreditation in the GCC.

Barbara Baumgartner, Managing Director, FAI rent-a-jet DMCC branch, comments: “We are honoured and proud to receive this award which serves as a great endorsement for our achievements in the region. I would like to thank our clients for their continued support as well as our dedicated team of professionals who work tirelessly every day to make our work possible.”
