A Guide to Air Ambulance Cost in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

HI Flying - Air Ambulance International does patient transportation from Mecca Jeddah Riyadh Dammam and from other smaller airport to different locations in the world.

Patient are flown on both Air Ambulance Charter flight or by Commercial flight business class or stretcher class with ALS medical equipment and oxygen.

Air Ambulance cost can have wide variations.
The cost of an air ambulance will depend on your individual case
with prices depending on the following factors:  

  • The patient's location and the distance they need to travel
  • The type of aircraft required
  • The number of medical staff required
  • The airport landing fees
  • The journey required by ground ambulance
  • Other variable factors

The range of cost is decided by the patient clinical status which can a stable patient sitting on a wheelchair or a critical patient on ventilator and inotrope supports.

The patient can travel on a Business class seat with accompanying medical escort with basic monitoring which can be an economical mode of travel, or the patient may need a Commercial flight stretcher travel with Basic life supports and one Doctor Medical escort and one Nurse escort.

A critical patient will need a dedicated Air Ambulance dedicated charter flight with all advanced life support equipment more like an ICU on a wing.

The cost range of transport for a Business class travel can range from 6000 USD to 12000 USD and will depend on the distance of travel.
The cost range of transport of a Commercial flight stretcher can range from 18000 USD to 25000 USD.

Charter Medical Air Ambulance flights can cost 30000 USD - 150000 USD.
It will also depend if the aircraft is a turbo-propeller aircraft for short domestic sector or a long-range Jet aircraft.

The high cost of Dedicated Air Ambulance flight is because of the Aircraft Aviation cost with the added value of fuel, medical team, medical equipment as well as the airport landing costs.

The larger jets will cost more than the smaller aircraft.
However, the larger jets would fly with lesser fuel stops compared to a smaller aircraft.

For example, an Air Ambulance flight from Jeddah KSA to the United States will fly with four to five fuel stops with a small jet, but the same distance can be done in two to one fuel stops with a larger aircraft.

International charter flights require aviation permissions from countries where they overfly. 

Visa ready, qualified medical escorts are needed with specialized aviation training to accompany critical patients.

We strive to reduce the cost for our clients.
