Paul Tiba, Managing Director, Airlec Air Espace says, "We are proud and excited to promote Dr Cyrille Montesinos as our new Medical Director after his 4 years of air ambulance transports with Airlec. I fully trust both the man and his vast medical experience to succeed in this new challenge - from French hospitals to remote African areas."

Dr. Montesinos takes over from Dr Hamida Chaouky who is heading for new challenges, for which Airlec Air Espace wish him all the best.

Dr. Montesinos has been a regular on the front line as a medical team member since the birth of Airlec Medical. He has solid Emergency Medicine experience as a Head of SAMU-SAU (French medical emergencies) and worked as a specialist right in the heart of the Ebola epidemic crisis in West Africa.

Dr. Montesinos will be in charge of the medical regulation as well as the management of Airlec physicians and nurse teams in the pursuit of Airlec innovative services.

As Medical Director, Dr. Montesinos will work in close collaboration with Dr. Yann Rouaud, Group Medical Director. This will enable Airlec to keep providing patients and clients with strong human values as well as advanced technology in order to ensure achievement of each air ambulance mission.
