MedAire, which provides international aviation and maritime clients with medical and security services, acquired Yacht Lifeline, a supplier to the high-end yacht market of medical aid, kits and training services. “The merger of brands and products delivers a higher level of medical and travel safety for owners, captains and management companies,” according to Grant Jeffery, MedAire’s CEO.
“Our business and general aviation clients who own or charter yachts will now be able to access the same benefits and confidence whether they are in-flight or at sea.” The agreement calls for Yacht Lifeline’s products and services to be combined with those of MedAire (Booth No. N5921), which is a subsidiary of International SOS. The parent firm operates in 70 countries.
