Air ambulance industry insiders have long held that REVA Air Ambulance deserves the ITIJ (International Travel & Health Insurance Journal) award, which has now become a reality. In an award function held in Megaron Athens Concert Hall, the Air Ambulance of the Year award was handed over to REVA. This is the 13th year that the awards have been presented to those companies that have contributed positively and meaningfully to the global health insurance and travel industry. The other finalists were Tyrol Air Ambulance, FAI and ER24. The finalists had been announced earlier this year. The award was sponsored by US San Diego.
REVA Air Ambulance has Been Nominated Before
In fact, REVA air ambulance has been nominated twice before for the award. It was first nominated in the year 2012 but fell short of winning the award. REVA was nominated again last year but fell short of winning the award by a whisker. The year 2015, however, has proved lucky to the air ambulance company and it has finally bagged the award.
