Global Medical Response (GMR) has ordered 21 Airbus helicopters from the H125, H130 and H135 families, with options to include up to an additional 23 helicopters, bringing the total order potential up to 44 helicopters.
GMR currently has a fleet of nearly 133 Airbus helicopters. In the past 18 months alone, GMR has taken delivery of 15 Airbus helicopters.
“We fly a variety of Airbus products, but the main thing they have in common – and the most important thing we look for in our critical care transport solutions – is reliability,” said Rob Hamilton, president of the GMR Alliances Group. “Our Airbus fleet allows us to respond quickly and transport critical patients with the appropriate level of care to give them the absolute best chance of survival. With the addition of these new aircraft, our fleet grows stronger and more capable to save lives when it matters most.”
GMR is one of the largest operators of Airbus helicopters, delivering care through multiple operating brands, including Air Evac Lifeteam, Guardian Flight, Med-Trans Corp., and REACH Air Medical Services. These operations transported more than 125,000 patients in 2020.
“The air medical mission demands high availability rates. The H125 and H130 set the standard in the single-engine segment, and the H135 has stood out in the twin-engine segment thanks to its consistent reliable performance in this mission,” said Romain Trapp, president of Airbus Helicopters, Inc. and head of the North America region.
