Last year International Assistance Group launched a new Partnership Model that has achieved its success, considering the enterprise expanded its network and today counts with an alliance of more than 56 Partners around the world. Likewise it is present in 38 countries within six continents.
To extend the coverage of aero-medical evacuations in the US, Canada, Alaska, Hawaii, Latin America, and more, American Care Air Ambulance joined the international network as Preferred Provider in February 2013.

The company has conducted more than 4700 missions for assistance and insurance companies, hospitals, US government organizations, and private-pay individuals throughout the world.
Last year American Care Air Ambulance successfully conducted 218 aero-medical-evacuation missions. The new alliance between the two companies delighted their managers, who are motivated to collaborate. “To further develop positive relationship with, and understand the needs of, assistance companies which are our primary clients,” expressed Floribus, current Vice President of American Care Air Ambulance, concerning his motivation to join the International Assistance Partnership Program.
