Hi Flying - Air Ambulance International provides an economical alternative to chartered air ambulance transport services through medical escort service. Medical escort service is available on a variety of flight classifications. Patients can choose from medical escort service when traveling in Business Class, First Class, and Stretcher Class on any commercial airline.
When a patient is cleared by a doctor to fly on a commercial flight, but requires medical equipment and professional care, simply booking a flight on a commercial carrier is not an option. Instead, medical escort service allows the patient to travel on a commercial airline while still maintaining access to life-saving medical equipment and medication. They will also have a medical professional along to care for them and administer any necessary treatments or medications.
When an emergency transport such as an air ambulance is not necessary, patients need a more cost-effective, yet safe option for travel. This service is reserved for patients who are medically stable and unlikely to require emergency medical care while traveling. Medical escort service on commercial airlines is ideal for relocating elderly or ill patients from one state, region, or country to another. While in flight, the patient will still have access to essential medical equipment and medications, including oxygen and basic medical monitoring. When booking a Stretcher Class flight, patients will be safely and comfortably transported on aeromedical stretchers.
In addition to essential medical equipment and medications, patients will also travel with an experienced medical professional or team. Depending on the individual patient and their clinical condition, their escort team may include a doctor and a nurse, a nurse and a paramedic, or a doctor, nurse, paramedic, and RT team. Each member of our experienced medical team has ICU or CCU experience, as well as advanced experience as a medical escort.
