Joining this round are Vintage Investment Partners and Munich Re Ventures, alongside The Phoenix, one of Israel's leading insurance providers, as well as Kamet Ventures, which led the company’s previous round.

The Air Doctor platform connects travelers who fall ill abroad with local private doctors through an easy-to-use mobile and web app. Air Doctor’s outpatient medical network covers 74 countries and includes over 20,000 medical professionals who provide either in-person or telemedicine consultations.

In addition to bringing on board more developers to work on product customization, Air Doctor will use the new investment to hire new employees and open additional offices internationally. The company also has plans to expand the product and marketing teams, and the vetted medical professional network, particularly in the U.S. and Europe.
