Etihad Airways to introduce in-flight health monitors1 March 2010
Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has announced it will install new technology on its long haul aircraft that will monitor in detail the condition of ill passengers.
The system, called Tempus IC, will allow cabin crew to gather vital information about a passengerâ€™s health quickly. Information gathered by the system will be transmitted to a medical team of experts around the world who specialise in assisting in-flight medical situations.
The technology, designed and manufactured by UK-based company RDT, will be installed on Etihadâ€™s A340 and Boeing 777 aircraft, and then across the remaining long and extra long haul fleet.
