The agreement takes Dubai’s medical tourism to the next level, operating at the intersection of private aviation and medical urgencies.

A fleet of ambulance aircraft equipped with intensive care units, can transport patients from any part of the world to American Hospital Dubai. The ambulance aircraft guarantee top-quality medical assistance and attention throughout the journey.

Upon arrival at the Jetex VIP Terminal in Dubai, American Hospital Dubai’s medical team will welcome the patients and accompanying family members and facilitate ground or helicopter transportation to the hospital. In addition, Jetex can arrange hotel accommodation and other services for the family members during their stay in the city.

Renowned for its world-class medical professionals, cutting-edge medical technology, excellent diagnostics and affordable care and services, Dubai’s status as a hub for medical tourism will receive a further boost with this new venture.

Established in 1996, the 252-bed American Hospital is a premier private healthcare provider in the Middle East and the medical destination of choice for international patients.

This partnership underlines our commitment to offer the highest level of facilitation to international patients and ensure that we are with them every step of their journey with us. In addition, I believe this initiative will play a significant role in strengthening Dubai’s status as the hub of medical tourism.”

Commenting on the signing of the agreement, Adel Mardini, Founder & CEO of Jetex, said: “We are proud to announce the partnership between the American Hospital Dubai and Jetex, and launch the world’s leading global healthcare program. We did in-depth research of the international best practice in this area and took it to a brand-new level to reflect the vision of Dubai as the global center of medical excellence. We aim to ensure that patients, wherever they may be in the world, can count on us at the most challenging times to transport them efficiently and safely to their medical destination.”

Issam Kazim, CEO of Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing, said: “We welcome this partnership between Jetex and American Hospital Dubai as another example of the collaborative efforts that are driving the growth and development of our medical tourism ecosystem. Leveraging Dubai’s reputation as a healthcare hub and taking advantage of the city’s connectivity and logistics capabilities, this partnership will allow more patients around the world to benefit from the quality services offered here.

The list of countries and areas with an increased risk of infection is updated on a regular basis. The latest list was published on 16 April. Anyone arriving in Switzerland from one of these countries or areas must, among other things, go into quarantine.

Jetex customers are now able to choose to fly with a reduced carbon footprint from six key global locations following an agreement with Shell. This demonstrates how general aviation service providers can support the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and its commitment to reducing the industry’s carbon emissions by 50% by 2050.

As an award-winning global leader in executive aviation, Jetex is fully aware of its responsibility towards the natural environment and to future generations, and pursues a comprehensive environmental strategy.

In today’s world, private aviation is a vital global catalyst for growth, providing access to markets, supporting jobs and promoting travel recovery. In addition to its many positive economic effects, though, air transport contributes to the production of carbon emissions. In response, Jetex is working with Shell to offer customers an option to offset the carbon emissions of their air travel. Offsets represent an immediate measure that can be deployed at scale by compensating for CO2 emissions.

Every day, more than 200 aircraft fueled by Jetex take to the sky across the world. Being at the forefront of aviation fuel efficiency, Jetex is determined to reduce carbon emissions to continue developing without devaluing the environment. The new tool allows Jetex customers to calculate their flight emissions associated with the use of jet fuel and reduce them by choosing to invest in environment conservation programs. The programs are certified by international organizations such as the Verified Carbon Standard as well as Climate, Community, and Biodiversity Standard, and include protection or redevelopment of natural ecosystems – such as forests, grasslands and wetlands – to lower concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. To recognize customers’ input, Jetex will be issuing certificates acknowledging individual contributions.

Adel Mardini, Founder & CEO of Jetex, commented: “With private aviation growing, we are even more aware that our future has to be sustainable. Solving the complex issue of climate protection requires a multifaceted response, and offsetting emissions on flights is just one step that we are adopting to reduce our environmental impact. By working with Shell, we have carefully chosen environmental programs to ensure they are proven and deliver CO2 emissions reductions as well as benefits to the communities and local biodiversity.”

“We look forward to working with Jetex to help enable their customers to compensate for flight emissions by choosing Shell’s high-quality nature-based carbon offsets,” said Anna Mascolo, President of Global Aviation at Shell. “Until sustainable aviation fuels and technology are developed at scale, carbon offsets will play a key role in helping the aviation sector achieve net-zero emissions.”

The new service is initially offered at Dubai, Paris, Singapore, Dublin, Dusseldorf and Salalah airports, with more locations being added as more of our customers want to lead the way to fly with reduced carbon footprint.

With energy and resource conservation being at the heart of its operations, Jetex is always looking to deliver the best value to its customers globally while helping them to reduce their carbon footprint. The new carbon offset program will provide a sound foundation for further globally orchestrated and genuinely effective environmental protection measures within the private aviation sector.
