Worldwide medical air transportation with EMS Air Ambulance & Medical Repatriation
Every year, hundreds of people travel across the world with EMS Air Ambulance & Medical Repatriation to seek medical treatment in other countries. Air medical transportations – sometimes known as ‘med flights’ – happen for all kinds of reasons: patients who want to access specialist or long-term care in a private hospital (so-called ‘planned medical treatment’), relatives who need to bring a sick child or loved one back home, organisations whose expat employees have fallen ill and need urgent repatriation. For all these kinds of situations, the safest, quickest and most hassle-free way to bring someone home is with an air ambulance. An air medical transport is essentially a cross-country journey by specially-commissioned, specially-equipped private aeroplane.
Fly from anywhere, to anywhere
EMS works with an international aviation network that can operate literally anywhere in the world, from straightforward country-to-country flights to repatriations from conflict zones. There’s no limit on the distance you can travel, or the routes we can organise. We’ve flown emergency cases everywhere from Athens to Los Angeles, Malta to London, and thousands of other destinations. We also have local offices on two continents and three time zones: Europe, the UAE and Afghanistan.
Get home within hours
Air ambulances can operate with exceptional speed, because they’re not hampered by ticket availability, commercial travel restrictions and third-party bookings. Our service team is on call 24/7, ready to organise a medical flight transportation at any time, day or night. Road ambulances take the patient right up to the doors of the plane and collect them from the landing strip at their destination airport. Transports can be underway within 24 hours and completed within 48 hours.
Receive intensive care at all times
Air medical transports can handle patients who are in a critical condition and need continuous medical care, or who need to have emergency treatment on standby in case their situation deteriorates. Every plane (and collecting road ambulance) comes equipped with state-of-the-art medical equipment, medication and a team of medics, with onboard facilities tailored to the needs of the patient. In essence, they are mobile intensive care units (ICUs) capable of delivering hospital-standard treatment.
Leave everything to us
Once you’ve accepted a quote and commissioned us to go ahead with the medical air transportation, we take care of everything else. EMS will sort the routes and clear the flight plans, organise all the documents you need for the journey (including Visa on Arrivals (VOAs), if you don’t have time to apply for a regular visa), and coordinate with all the medical teams involved in your journey. Our medical air transportation service is a complete bed-to-bed service, which means we take you all the way from A to B, with a full medical handover at your destination hospital.
