Commercial Flight Medical Escort Services
Medical flight escort service from Air Ambulance Worldwide was created to enable medically stable patients who require assistance to travel on commercial flights. It is the ideal solution for seniors being relocated, wheelchair-bound patients, or for patients with special medical needs who are moving closer to home or to a facility that offers essential care. Air Ambulance Worldwide understands how stressful it can be to arrange travel plans for a loved one or patient who requires extra attention, and we want to assure you that you will be in extremely capable hands from start to finish.
What is a commercial flight medical escort?
Depending on the medical needs of the person being moved, there are multiple long-distance medical transportation options that can be considered. Commercial flight medical escorts are one of the most cost-effective ways of transporting a person with significant medical needs long-distance.
With a commercial medical escort, the person needing assistance will have one or two medical professionals who accompany them from their home, a nursing home, hospital or other location all the way to their final destination. The commercial medical escort will provide medical assistance and handle the details of moving the client through the airport.
The benefit of this is that without having to charter a private medical flight, the costs are far more efficient. Commercial medical escorts can help ensure a safe and comfortable flight.
