BLADE India, the helicopter charter company, has announced the launch of its ‘BLADE Care’, an end-to-end medevac service pan-India

This service will be accessible for medical evacuations and essential travel. Aero-medical charters will be arranged for both Covid and non-Covid patients with a team of certified doctors, paramedics, and clinicians onboard. Every flier will also be assigned a dedicated BLADE relationship manager, providing assistance throughout, from booking their flight to ensuring they reach their destination safely.

BLADE has partnered with MyHealthcare to offer 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 available for regular air travel, for people who want to travel interstate or return to their hometowns.

Amit Dutta, managing director, BLADE India said:

“The current pandemic crisis has resulted in a dire need for medicare facilities especially for those needing critical care. We have been inundated with requests from families of patients looking to transport their loved ones to other cities offering the relevant medicare facilities.

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. To ensure a holistic experience, we have partnered with India’s leading speciality healthcare ecosystem, MyHealthcare. The partnership gives us the ability to serve leading hospitals and healthcare providers and bring to our patients the most experienced team for clinical care.”

Shyatto Raha, founder and CEO, MyHealthcare said:

“Super speciality and multi-speciality services are limited to the top metros of India today. Critical patients in Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities need to travel to metros to receive specialised care, which is time-consuming. Medevacs will play a critical role in saving lives, ensuring they are in the best medical hands as quickly as possible. Covid-19 has thrown up another challenge, whereby patients are unable to travel easily from one location to another.

“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.”
