Pel-Air Chosen As Preferred Contractor By Ambulance Victoria

Ten-Year Contract Begins In 2011

Regional Express (Rex) says that its subsidiary Pel-Air Aviation Pty Ltd (Pel-Air) has been selected as conditional preferred provider of Fixed Wing Patient Transport Services by the Victorian State Government.

The 10-year contract would start in mid-2011 and entails the supply of fixed-wing air transport to Ambulance Victoria for medical evacuation of patients to and from regional areas. Negotiations are underway with Ambulance Victoria with a contract expected to be executed by September 2009. Until then all details of the proposed contract remain confidential.

Established in 1985, Pel-Air has provided aircraft services for all major airlines and freight companies in Australia including pioneering Qantas International Dedicated Freight services between Australia and New Zealand. For the past 12 years Pel-Air has also been contracted by the RAAF and the RAN to provide target towing services as well as specialist tactical flying for its training missions.

In 2001, Pel-Air commenced jet-operated medical evacuation services and now is the largest such commercial operator in Australia providing medical aerial operations domestically as well as to the South-East Asia and Pacific regions. In conjunction with NRMA Careflight, it has complete medical and air crew teams based permanently in Perth, Darwin, Cairns and Sydney on emergency standby 24/7.
