BLADE partners with MyHealthcare to offer end to end services for transporting both COVID and non-covid patients with teams of certified paramedics, doctors and clinicians
BLADE India, a pioneer in Urban Air Mobility (UAM), has announced the launch of its medevac service ‘BLADE Care’. Amid the growing coronavirus cases, the brand aims to bridge the accessibility concerns for those who are looking at emergency medical travel.
BLADE Care services will be accessible for medical evacuations and essential travel. The brand will arrange aero-medical charters for both covid and non-covid patients with a team of certified doctors, paramedics and clinicians onboard. Considering the current situation, BLADE will act as the one-stop-shop for all charter needs by ensuring people don’t spend a lot of time connecting with multiple parties for travel plans. Every flier will also be assigned a dedicated BLADE relationship manager, assisting throughout, from booking their flight to ensuring they reach their destination safely.
As a part of its services, the BLADE has partnered with MyHealthcare to bring to its patients a complete medevac ecosystem, using a network of ground ambulances, BLADE partner aircraft or helicopters, using all government-mandated protocols in transporting covid and non-covid patients.
BLADE Care is also open for regular air travel, for people who want to travel inter-state, return to their hometowns or any other place they feel the safest.
“At BLADE India we look to alleviate the hassles and inconvenience faced by distressed families desperately trying to locate a craft for the medical evacuation and comply with all the formalities. The partnership with MyHealthcare gives us the ability to serve leading hospitals and healthcare providers and bring to our patients the most experienced team for clinical care,” says Amit Dutta, MD, BLADE India.
Shyatto Raha, Founder & CEO, MyHealthcare said, “Our partnership with BLADE India will help enhance the medevac services for our patients, allowing us access to a wider network of air ambulances and helicopters. Through the partnership, we will be able to manage a complete bed to bed transfer of our patients, in the shortest possible time. At MyHealthcare, we remain committed to ensuring we bring to our patients the best and most effective healthcare solutions, through our ecosystem of care.”
BLADE India ensures safety and hygiene protocols are maintained at the lounges and inside the aircraft. BLADE has implemented guidelines issued by the GOI, WHO and industry-leading health, safety and sanitisation protocols designed by its parent company - FLY BLADE USA. Safety measures include regular testing of the crew, contactless temperature checks of passengers and crew, masks and face shields for all aboard, sanitisation of the lounges and cars, aircraft decontamination with an airline-grade fogging system after each flight.
