FAI rent-a-jet GmbH’s Air Ambulance Division has received Commercial Airline Medical Escort (CAME) accreditation from the European Aeromedical Institute (EURAMI) for its Dubai-based medical escort service. This follows 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. 

To qualify for CAME accreditation, operators must demonstrate sufficient operational experience of at least 100 completed missions; that they have dedicated qualified personnel and infrastructure suitable for CAME operations and suitable equipment to perform safe medical transportation on commercial flights.  Additionally, providers must be compliant with at least 90% of the EURAMI CAME Standards including: Business Organisation and Ethics; Safety and Quality; Operations and Medical and Logistics.
