Ambulance flights, flying with extra care
Repatriation! The first thing that comes to mind when you hear this word might be the air ambulances that pick up people that got injured on their skiing holiday. However, Global Aviation is also used, for example, to repatriate an ill employee from an African country or for the medical emergency flight of a patient to a specific hospital.
Global Aviation provides a wide range of fully equipped air ambulances for various purposes and urgent matters.
An air ambulance is prepared for each specific situation
The aircraft, the medical team and the necessary equipment are tailored to the specific care that the patient (or flight) needs. Because it may involve a single patient or multiple patients simultaneously, including possible family members flying with them. The condition of the patient(s) and number of patients determine the use of the appropriate medical aircraft and the degree of medical supervision.
Repatriation from door-to-door
If you become very ill during your holiday or are involved in a serious accident, it is perfectly understandable that you would want to return to your familiar surroundings and/or private doctor as soon as possible. We will of course also arrange deployment of ambulances to and from the airport and transfer for escorts or family members.
Ambulance flights with additional services
Of course medical transport of persons is not easy and airlines have strict rules for this. Aside from the ambulance flight, a lot of things have to be taken into account, for example:
- Arrange ambulances to and from the airport
- If necessary, the deployment of medical helicopters
- Repatriation from inaccessible or hazardous areas
- If necessary, coordinating rapid, consecutive (medical) flights
- Arranging specialist medical staff and equipment
- Communication between doctors, family and airline staff
- Ambulance flights for organ transplantation
