Airbus has received a further firm order from Global Medical Response (GMR) for 21 helicopters from its H125, H130, and H135 families, with an option for a further 23 aircraft. GMR is one of the largest operators of Airbus helicopters and in the last 18 months alone took delivery of 15 of them as part of its Airbus fleet expansion program which currently runs at 133 aircraft.

GMR delivers care through multiple operating brands, including Air Evac Lifeteam, Guardian Flight, Med-Trans Corp., and REACH Air Medical Services which, combined, transported more than 125,000 patients in 2020. “We fly a variety of Airbus products, but the main thing they have in common – and the most important thing we look for in our critical care transport solutions – is reliability,” said Rob Hamilton, president of the GMR Alliances Group. “Our Airbus fleet allows us to respond quickly and transport critical patients with the appropriate level of care to give them the absolute best chance of survival. With the addition of these new aircraft, our fleet grows stronger and more capable to save lives when it matters most.”
