Etihad Airways has introduced two specialised services for air travellers with pre-existing medical conditions, making sure the continuity of care and in-flight safety.
Etihad stated in a statement that the one-stop-shop services – the first in the region to be provided by an airline – will be executed by members of the Etihad medical team, all of whom are qualified in transport medicine and aviation.
The first service permits guests, who need medical clearance before the travel, the chance to request an Etihad aviation doctor to visit them and perform an evaluation in consultation with their attending physician.
All medical assessments and forms will be finished by the Etihad doctor on-site, leading to a recommendation regarding their “fit to fly” status within one day.
The second service is the launch of an in-flight nurse who can go along with the guests during their trip and give medical support.
Etihad Airways’ vice president of medical services, Dr Nadia Bastaki mentioned, “Etihad is delighted to be the first airline in the region to provide these new medical services which will cater for guests who require medical assistance during their travel.”
He even said, “Both services will help ensure our guests have a smooth and hassle-free journey, greatly removing unnecessary anxiety they sometimes feel when travelling.”
