Long-Distance Non-Emergency Medical Air Transport
If you or a loved one are stable enough for air transportation but still need some degree of medical assistance on your flight, Air Ambulance Worldwide has several options. Air Ambulance Worldwide understands how stressful it can be to arrange travel plans for a loved one, an elderly patient that needs to be moved long-distance, or a patient who requires extra attention, and we want to assure you that you will be in extremely capable hands from start to finish. Our specialty flight coordinators are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help you find the best and most cost-effective solution for your needs.
Medical Escorts on Commercial Flights
A medical escort on a commercial flight is ideal for medically stable patients who require assistance to travel. It is a preferred 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.
Once in the air, our healthcare professionals will provide the various medical, sanitary, and personal care that the patient requires to ensure that their travel experience is as comfortable as possible. Each medical staff member on our team has years of experience in the ICU/CCU, providing peace of mind to the patient that if a medical situation does arise, the flight escort has the training needed to appropriately respond. Commercial flight medical escorts are one of the most cost-effective ways of transporting a person with significant medical needs long-distance.
Commercial Stretcher Service on Long-Distance Non-Emergency Medical Flights
For stretcher-bound patients on international commercial flights, Air Ambulance Worldwide will handle all the logistics and make all the arrangements. We will work with the airline to accommodate the needs of patients who require a stretcher or other medical equipment when traveling on a commercial flight, streamline the security check process and ensure privacy on the flight.
A highly trained medical team member will accompany the patient, administering medical care along the way, and make sure they arrive at their destination safely and as comfortably as possible.
International Long-Distance Non-Emergency Medical Air Transport
Global medical air transport requires being able to navigate international airports and customs. Our medical staff includes members who are fluent in Spanish, Dutch, Turkish, Greek and other languages, and flight nurses who hold annual visas for India, and China, among other nations.
In addition, all our medical staff members have extensive ICU/CCU experience, our pilots are extremely experienced, and we have earned a prestigious ARGUS Gold safety rating as well as EURAMI accreditation, which is only given to mobile air service providers that comply with stringent medical protocols and have exceptional safety records.
