Factors that decide the price

Over the years, EMS Ambulance carried out hundreds of repatriations from foreign destinations all over the world. The requirements and needs of patients can differ immensely during a medical transport. Also the cost of medication and medical personnel play an important role. In general, the following factors decide the how much an air ambulance cost:

  • Transport by air ambulance
  • Time and distance
  • Medical equipment and medication
  • Trained medical staff and crew
  • Patient’s condition
  • Urgency

To begin with, the costs of the ambulance plane, private airplane or helicopter are an important factor. Further, elements such as airport transfers and organising landing slots play a role. Also, the time and distance should be considered. In many cases longer flights ask for more personnel hours and fuel usage. This makes it likely that a repatriation from Spain to the United Kingdom is cheaper than a medical flight from Indonesia to the UK. Lastly, the medical condition of the patient will determine the size of the medical crew that we send. And it also decides what medical equipment is necessary. This is why we always ask for the individuals needs and circumstances of the patient during our first contact. All of the elements above show that the costs of an air ambulance depends on many different factors.
