Global Guardian completed a complex medical evacuation moving a client from Nuuk, Greenland to New York City, New York.

The client was on board a cruise ship and required emergency medical transport back to The United States. Global Guardian coordinated monitoring of local treatment and dispatched a Learjet 45 along with ground teams. Within 12 hours, the client was moved to a runway that accommodated the aircraft, and the client was safely home in less than 36 hours.

The client was a member of Air Ambulance, Global Guardian’s air medical membership program, and therefore paid no out-of-pocket expenses.

This event exemplifies Global Guardian’s comprehensive ‘one-button-solution’ for any medical or security emergency that travelers might face. By having a single provider of emergency services, the traveler received world-class support and had local response resources available to them in a matter of hours.
