Roya TV has signed a deal with the Jordan Air Ambulance Center (JAAC) today, where the two parties have agreed on exchanging services.

Roya TV’s General Manager, Fares Sayegh, and JAAC’s Chief Executive Officer, Captain Rami Al Emoush, signed the deal during the ceremony that took place at the Amman Civil Airport (Marka International Airport) at 10:30am this morning.

Roya TV will aim to raise JAAC’s media profile as well as cover their news and events, as part of their corporate social responsibility to support the center that saves lives on a daily basis. The deal also aims at encouraging Jordanian national organizations to support JAAC, and encouraging all hospitals in the Kingdom to equip its hospitals with helipads.

Meanwhile, JAAC, which has two helicopters and more than access to 45 helipads, will place Roya TV’s logo on their helicopters and notify them of any cases worth reporting.

Following the signing ceremony, guests were invited to a welcome breakfast, before Mr. Sayegh and Captain Rami talked about their partnership.

JAAC is an unprecedented, independent entity launched in 2015 by direction from His Majesty King Abdullah II. The center’s mission is to provide medical evacuation of critically-ill and injured Jordanians and residents in Jordan, from remote areas and hospitals to more advanced and specialized centres in the capital Amman.

In 2017, the centre responded to 70 emergency cases in Jordan, and it hopes to be able to provide its services for free in the near future.
