LONG-DISTANCE NON-EMERGENCY MEDICAL TRANSPORT SERVICES
Non-emergency medical transport with medical jets allows patients who may be unable to travel conventionally due to medical conditions to travel safely from one location to another.
Sometimes, patients who are stable, but are otherwise unable to travel by conventional means are required to use non-emergency medical transportation due to oxygen requirements, mobility issues or for ease and comfort.
Additionally, there are some people who need to travel long-distances and can do so via commercial airlines, but need additional medical support. For those, commercial medical escorts can make standard commercial flights a viable option rather than needing to use a private jet.
WHO NEEDS NON-EMERGENCY MEDICAL TRANSPORTATION SERVICES?
For instance, a patient may live in Tampa, Florida, but need to see a specialist in Jacksonville, Florida. The drive may be too long for the patient and a commercial flight may be too stressful, so we offer an alternative means of transportation – long-distance non-emergency medical transport services.
Another example is an elderly mother living in a nursing home in New York may decide she wants to visit her family in North Carolina, but driving or flying commercially are not an option for her, so we offer this type of transportation for elderly people.
WHAT ARE THE NON-EMERGENCY MEDICAL TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS?
Our non-emergency medical transportation services are the solution in similar cases. In order to serve as many patients as possible, we have a transportation assistance program with various options for this type of transfer:
- Fixed-wing air ambulance service
- Commercial medical escort service
- International commercial medical stretchers

Commercial Flight Medical Escorts
A medical escort traveling with a patient on a commercial flight is an ideal solution for relocating seniors, wheelchair patients, or patients who need to be moved to a facility that offers essential care.
Sometimes, people who have been recently diagnosed with diabetes need help with monitoring and administration of diabetes medications in-flight. Other people are on oxygen support and need assistance with that through the airports and on the flights. While there are a wide range of medical needs on commercial flights, Air Ambulance Worldwide can provide trained personnel to assist with those.
Our trained and experienced healthcare professionals can provide basic medical care, assistance with hygiene and medication and ensure that the travel experience is as comfortable as possible. If a medical situation does arise during the flight, the medical escort has the training needed to appropriately respond.
Moving Elderly Parents long-distance
There are many times you need to move elderly parents long-distance, and when they’re not able to take a standard medical flight, Air Ambulance Worldwide can help. Depending on the level of care they need, Air Ambulance Worldwide can assist with facilitating a medical flight or a commercial flight medical escort.
Stretcher Service on International Flights
For patients who require a stretcher of other medical equipment on international commercial flights, Air Ambulance Worldwide can handle all the logistics. We will work with the airline to accommodate the patient’s medical needs, streamline the security process, and ensure privacy during the flight.
In addition, a highly trained medical team member will accompany the patient during the entire journey, administer care along the way, and make sure they arrive at their destination safely and as comfortably as possible.
Non-emergency medical flights on Private Medical Aircraft
If a private flight on a medical jet is desired, Air Ambulance owns and maintains our own fleet of specially equipped medical aircraft to provide, safe, efficient medical air transportation. In addition, Air Ambulance Worldwide is networked with strategic partners across the globe, and can often find, “empty legs” that our partners have available on connecting flights.
