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.

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.
