When patients are medically stable and require basic life support care, they can choose to travel on a commercial airline accompanied by an expert air medical escort.
From the moment the journey begins, a medical escort will be there by the patient’s side every step of the way, tending to their needs. Under constant care, the patient flies comfortably on a major airline carrier—including Delta, United American, Lufthansa, British Airways, and Cathay Pacific.
Before boarding your flight, our trained and qualified commercial medical escort will perform a detail medical assessment, ensuring you are in good enough health to travel.
Throughout the flight, a team of critical care physicians, flight nurses, and registered respiratory therapists will be there to constantly monitor you, providing oxygen, medication, CPR, or other necessary medical treatments. What’s more, the medical crew will aid with meal assistance, hygiene, mobility, and other care concerns.
Once the commercial airline has landed, an air medical escort will conduct a post-flight examination to ensure there are no further complications. Our healthcare team will also remain with you until you reach your destination, comfortably and safely.
