Aeromedic Secures Three-year easyJet Medical Kit Contract

Our Bureau - : Jan 30, 2024 - : 5:55 am

Ametek MRO AEM signed a 3-year agreement to provide total refurbishment services for easyJet’s first aid kits (FAKs) and supplementary medical kits (SMKs) for its fleet of A320 family aircraft. The Company’s specialist Aeromedic division will bring its experience and knowledge of the CAA/EASA regulatory approvals to guide on kit contents.

Aeromedic’s ability to share best practices for kit management is supported by its track record of delivering a streamlined professional service to airlines worldwide.

“Aeromedic’s success in securing the easyJet contract is testament to our commitment to outstanding product delivery and service,” said Steven Rowley, Engineering Director of AEM. “This achievement reinforces Aeromedic’s position as industry leaders in this highly regulated product category. We are proud to support easyJet’s continued focus on passenger safety aboard their aircraft.”

The work will be carried out at AEM’s Luton facility where Aeromedic’s capability to track the expiry date and batch number of every individual component in every kit is controlled through bespoke kit processing software. This enables it to recall any product at any time, as needed, across 65,000 parts contained within easyJet’s first aid kits. Annually it is estimated that there will be refurbishment requirements for circa 1,100 FAKs and 2,000 SMKs.

If a kit is opened on board an aircraft and its contents consumed, it will then make its way back to Aeromedic on the scheduled weekly delivery/collection shuttle for replenishment before its release back to service. Recycling is very important and all items with sufficient shelf-life remain in the kits as they are repacked.
