Royal Jet has announced that it had added Tempus 2000 (manufactured by RDT Ltd), a device that allows Royal Jet to offer complete peace of mind to its VIP customers.

Representatives from RDT and MedLink joined the Royal Jet management team to announce the partnership which is the first in the Gulf region.

In the air, the crew is assisted by the Tempus 2000, a technological system of advanced mobile medical care. Tempus 2000 offers remote monitoring technology allowing cabin crews to assist passengers who become ill onboard. Tempus is also able to connect the Royal Jet flight with a MedLink Centre. MedLink allows all Royal Jet aircraft direct in-flight access to U.S. board-certified emergency physicians and specialists through the MedLink Service of MedAire. MedLink physicians in a hospital on the ground provide real-time, remote medical guidance and advice to aircraft throughout the world, managing approximately 60 in-flight medical emergencies a day.

Tempus 2000 can perform a wide range of patient monitoring, from non-invasive blood pressure and pulse oximetry to ECG, thermometry and capnometry, and transmit its findings to MedLink doctors on the ground, or even the patient's own doctor, wherever in the world he or she may be. The doctor decides if the case is critical and the flight needs to be diverted or instructs the cabin crew on what to do to make the patient more comfortable.

"We felt that adding the advanced Tempus 2000 service on board the fleet enables Royal Jet to maintain its commitment towards VIPs such as royalty, ministers, celebrities, senior executives and individuals requiring absolute discretion in their travels. We are the first company in the Gulf region to install Tempus 2000 and be able to offer this to our discerning customers," says Captain Tilmann Gabriel, CEO Royal Jet.

Royal Jet planes will be fully equipped with this remote diagnostics and monitoring equipment, which is able to eliminate false alarms and medical diversions while safeguarding the health of all on board by providing a high standard of medical care.
