Luxaviation, one of the largest private aircraft operators worldwide, is today announcing it has selected MedAire’s operational security solution to ensure best-in-class safety and risk management services for its fleet of 270 aircraft. 

Luxaviation, dedicated to service excellence, selected MedAire after appraising the market with an extensive tender utilising a 20-point criteria matrix. MedAire will provide travel security information, analysis and assessment as well as 24/7 global assistance as part of a comprehensive security solution. 

The agreement provides real-time travel security reporting about destinations, regions, airspace and airports that is thoroughly vetted and analysed by aviation experts.

MedAire provides us with complete and integrated solutions including information, analysis and on the ground assistance as a response capability.”
