Our doctors have the final say.

Since the medic accompanying the patient is responsible for the patient’s safety in the air, they alone decide whether or not a patient is well enough to travel.

Our flight doctors possess long-standing experience and extensive knowledge and are ideally placed to judge a patient’s condition. If necessary, our doctor will consult the treating doctor and will include the patient’s family in important decisions.

Because most air ambulances can be fitted with intensive care equipment, they are used to safely transport patients in a coma or patients who have suffered a stroke or heart attack.

The patient’s well-being is the highest priority on all flights, and every flight is planned meticulously. Flight planners and specialist doctors are involved in planning every repatriation. To relieve the patient’s relatives and to ensure optimum medical care during the trip, we arrange for updates on the patient’s condition and, if necessary, facilitate pre-flight doctor-to-doctor consultations. We guarantee the best possible medical treatment during the whole journey, by ground and by air, to provide peace of mind for our patients and their relatives.

Our first priority is the patient’s medical condition and their safety. We will start to organise an ambulance flight even if we haven’t received all the documentation we need. Paperwork, such as medical notes, can be handed in later. A lack of full documentation does not prevent repatriation by air.

Generally, but not always, we will need the patient’s medical notes from the clinic or hospital that treated them, along with their travel documents, such as passports and visas. Prior to the medical repatriation, our multilingual physicians will study the patient’s notes, or these may be translated, if necessary. If you wish, we can also support the patient and their relatives to apply for a visa.

The hospital refuses to release the patient. What can we do?

In most countries, patients cannot be held in a hospital against their will. It can happen, however, that the hospital staff are uncooperative, and that a language barrier or a lack of interest or understanding shown by hospital staff appear to make an ambulance flight impossible. But you can insist on the patient being released from hospital – if necessary, repeatedly pointing out that you are doing so of your own accord. If the hospital still refuses, contact us. Even in complex circumstances, we can usually find a solution.

The clinic has not provided a medical report, despite us asking them to several times. Is this legal?
No. It is common practice in most countries to promptly hand over medical notes about the patient’s state of health to the patient or family. If a clinic refuses to hand over medical notes or release papers, it is helpful to know your legal rights.

If this doesn’t work, contact us – we’d be happy to work on a solution with you. At times, hospital doctors just don’t have enough time to complete paperwork, due to their workload. In such cases a doctor-to-doctor consultation with our flight medics is very helpful.

Hand luggage can be carried on international repatriations and other medical flights. Whether the patient can take more luggage depends on the size of the aircraft: most Learjets are fitted with extensive medical equipment and allow only one item of hand luggage per passenger. If the patient is being transported on a larger ambulance plane, it will have more storage space.

You have the choice of a larger plane if you want to take extensive luggage. We will gladly answer all your questions concerning luggage transport.

On almost every air ambulance, at least one relative can accompany the patient. Depending on the type of aircraft we use and the patient’s state of health, we can sometimes find room for several of the patient’s companions and their luggage. We are happy to devise an individual transport solution for you, and we’re available 24/7.

That depends on the size of the ambulance plane and the size of the wheelchair. Small, foldable wheelchairs are normally no problem, but they have to be registered beforehand. Larger electronic or battery-powered wheelchairs can, in most cases, only be transported on board large ambulance planes, due to their size.

It is always possible for your family doctor to join the transfer as an accompanying person, providing there is room for them. However, they are not a replacement for a highly trained medical flight specialist.

We offer all our patients a bed-to-bed service. We arrange for an ambulance to bring the patient from the hospital to the plane, then from the airport to the clinic of your choice. You can also arrange ground transport yourself – we would be happy to support you.

When using an ambulance helicopter, ground transport is not needed as the helicopter can land at and take off from the hospital, or very close to it. 

Our Ground Ambulance Service is always ready to Assist in transporting patients from their Homes or Hospital to the Airport.

Generally, a relative or friend is able to travel in the ground ambulance with the patient. If that is not possible, we can arrange for alternative transport to and from the airport.

We select an aircraft with the patient’s needs in mind. Factors such as flight route, distance, cost and the number of people travelling with the patient are taken into account when we choose an Aeroplane.

We use various types of aircraft with sufficient range and speed for short, medium and long-distance flights for ambulance transfers and international repatriations.

We arrange the following planes:

Learjet 31, Learjet 35, Learjet 35A, Learjet 36, Learjet 45, Learjet 55 and Learjet 60, Bombardier Challenger,Cessna Citation CJ2, CJ3, CJ4, Citation Bravo, Citation Sovereign, Citation Mustang, Challenger, Hawker, Embraer Phenom, Gulfstream 100.

Turboprop ambulance planes are an economical alternative on short routes. These planes are able to take off from shorter runways at airports that may be closer to the patient’s final destination, so we can keep transport times to a minimum. If you prefer this solution, we use turboprop ambulance planes, including the following:

Beechcraft King Air 90 and 200
Piper Cheyenne III A.

With us, you can choose the plane you prefer, as long as it is technically viable. We are happy to advise you on the best type of aircraft, taking into consideration the patient’s condition, the flight route, the volume of luggage you have, the number of passengers, and so on.

Air ambulances are fitted with intensive care equipment that, depending on the type of plane, can be adjusted to accommodate the individual needs of the patient prior to the flight. That enables us to offer high-quality intensive care on the flight.

Standard medical equipment in an air ambulance includes the following:

- Lifeport Intensive Care Unit with vacuum mattress and patient loading system
- Central oxygen tank (6,000 litres) and optional reserve tank
- Multi-parameter intensive care transport monitor
- Compact defibrillator/monitor system
- Intensive care respirator for complex artificial respiration cases
- Portable blood gas analyzer
- Satellite telephone for global communication.

This list is an example of the type of equipment that can be carried. Our medical staff will add any extra medical equipment they think the patient may need, prior to the flight.
