Northern Air Solutions (NAS) is celebrating 15 years of air ambulance services as they continue to connect doctors and organ donations to patients in need of organ transplants. Currently NAS provides medevac services for Ornge, a non-profit charitable air ambulance organization in the province of Ontario. With 1,235 organ transplants conducted in Ontario in 2018 (Trillium Gift of Life Network), NAS positions itself as a key factor in saving lives and helping doctors reach their patients in a safe and effective way across Ontario. NAS can provide medevac services in addition to Ornge across North America and internationally.
“FlyGTA Group is pleased to increase the service offering in our product line, and with a focus to develop new and innovative technologies for aviation, the acquisition of Northern Air Solutions allows us to venture into even more possibilities. Our goal is to see how we can increase the efficiency of such programs in the air medical field with IATA’s new NDC capabilities, which translates in this case, directly to saving lives,” said Chris Nowrouzi, CEO FlyGTA Group and NAS.
The agreement with Ornge follows FlyGTA Group’s purchase of NAS in October which gave FlyGTA Group access to an additional fleet of Cessna Citations for air ambulances as well as for its growing charter services across North America, and vacation packages to Portugal, Mexico, Bahamas, Jamaica and other locations around the world.
NAS is a natural choice by Ornge to run its organ transportation service and will rely on FlyGTA Group and NAS’ expertise, footprint and reliability to deliver a trusted and responsive partner in extending the reach of healthcare in Ontario.
