27 AirLink employees get pink slips. St. Charles announced yesterday that they will sell Airlink to the largest air ambulance network in the country. Airlink spokesman Bob Gomes says he believes the new company, Med Trans-Corporation, is making a serious effort to hire the 27 AirLink employees. He says AirLink just didn't pencil out for St. Charles: "For St. Charles, the cost savings is that we won't be out the $1.5 million. The reason why they are able to do it is because of economy of scale: when you look at repairing and maintaining helicopters which is very expensive." The new company will also retain the AirLink name and honor current membership contracts. The deal is expected to close by mid-June.
