"We are tying up with various hospitals to launch ambulance services in India, South and Southeast Asian countries," Mr Godhwani told reporters.
Replying to a question, Mr Godhwani said that the company would not rule out the possibility of launching a scheduled airline service.
"We have long-term plans to establish air services and I don't rule out the possibility of launching scheduled airlines," Mr Godhwani said, adding that his company would look at acquisitions to support growth plans.
The company displayed its newly-acquired Falcon 7X at the Aviation India-2010, organised jointly by the civil aviation ministry and the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) at Begumpet Airport at Hyderabad.
At present, the company has a fleet of 11 aircraft and one helicopter.
