ITC-AeroLeasing (ITC) concluded five new leases with a major Emergency Medical Services operator in the United States, further expanding ITC’s commitment to community service.

ITC-AeroLeasing is excited to step up its partnership with a major US EMS operator, Med-Trans Corporation (Med-Trans), with the lease of five Bell 407, bringing Med-Trans’ total helicopter fleet on lease from ITC to seven.
The five Bell 407’s are configured for emergency medical services and will be deployed to Med-Trans bases in Texas, Iowa, Oklahoma, and Kansas, serving the local hospital systems. All leases will commence during the month of March 2024.

Since entering initial production in 1995, the Bell 407 has become one of the most popular models in EMS operations, known for its versatility and reliability. The lease of five additional Bell 407 aircraft will help further strengthen the services and capabilities of Med-Trans in the areas each aircraft will be operating.

ITC-AeroLeasing has been a proud partner to Global Medical Response (GMR), Med-Trans Corporation’s parent company, since 2019 with 33 aircraft leased in the past 5 years, and we are excited to strengthen our partnership with them and support their essential mission of providing care to the world at a moment’s notice.

Dmitiry Jidkov, GMR’s Vice President of Corporate Finance, said:

“We are pleased to further strengthen our relationship with ITC-AeroLeasing through our Med-Trans operations. In the past five years, ITC has been a trusted partner, and we look forward to partnering with them again in the future.”

Since 1986, ITC has been committed to supporting EMS operators across the United States. We look forward to continuing to help medical operators access well-maintained aircraft with the best performance and low operating costs.
