Emirates Group Security’s – a multi-faceted organisation part of the Emirates Group – longstanding partnership with MedAire has been cemented with yet another collaboration to build an innovative, cutting-edge solution that will improve its thorough analysis and threat-prevention systems in the aviation industry.
MedAire has been appointed to provide timely, accurate and actionable information that will enhance Emirates Group Security’s (EGS) arsenal of leading-edge systems.

Dr Abdulla Al Hashimi, Chief of Group Security, commented: “Our reputation in the industry for providing the best aviation security services is unrivalled. One of the reasons for our unequalled success is the constant investment in technology and our absolute resilient efforts for continual improvement. I am delighted with this partnership, and I’m sure that Emirates Group Security with MedAire will provide for a safer environment for all aviation industry professionals and customers.”
MedAire’s Aviation Security services help airlines receive timely, accurate, actionable information and provide them with thorough security assessments of crew hotels and ground transport at outstations.
