APP IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR ANDROID AND WINDOWS

PHOENIX (October 26, 2016) – MedAire’s expertise is now available for Android and Microsoft Windows devices. Since 2013, MedAire’s Trip Ready app has provided travel risk mitigation advice and assistance to flight departments around the world.  Based on client feedback, these additional platforms were added so all crewmembers, dispatch or operations teams can benefit from on-demand access to travel risk and medical information.

Previously available on iOS®, MedAire’s Trip Ready app provides users essential information about their destinations. Organized by ICAO, users can build their own dashboard to see medical and travel risk ratings, local time, current weather, and NOTAMs for each destination on their itinerary.

All users have access to further information on their destinations by ICAO airport code, including nearby lodging & dining options, conversion calculators (currency, distance, temperature), and a feature to add personal notes about their itinerary.  A weather tab includes information on temperature, visibility, winds, METAR and TAF.

Users with MedAire Membership have access to even more features, including notification of events that may affect their itinerary or personal wellbeing, including disease outbreaks, protests, and natural disasters. In addition to being alerted of the event, users are provided a synopsis of the occurrence and advice to mitigate the risk. 

“Members use of the Trip Ready app has gone from simply using the dashboard and alerts to relying on the app’s real-time access to security advice to help plan missions. The ease of communicating with or medical and security personnel has also increased the number of bespoke security solution requests we complete every day.” Said Peter Tuggey, Chief Operating Officer MedAire. 

Enhanced features on the MedAire Trip Ready app include the ability to call MedAire’s MedLink global response center directly from the app, as well as find nearby lodging and dining options by distance from your current location.

MedAire members have access to Aviation Travel Security Briefs via Trip Ready. The Aviation Travel Security Briefs provide an overview of medical and security considerations in the vicinity of the airport and may be downloaded and emailed to other crew and passengers. 

MedAire Trip Ready is available on iOS (8.0 or later) Android OS (5.0 Lollipop and later) and Windows (8.1 and later).
