Our Private Jet Medical Escort service is designed (depending on the patient’s condition) to provide reassurance and comfort in the air to loved ones who are travelling privately in their own aircraft or having chartered a private jet aircraft. Our team of Flight Doctors, Flight Paramedics and Flight Nurses provide peace of mind that there is a highly trained medic on board that will be fully focused on the medical care of your passengers and loved ones during their repatriation via road ambulance to a UK hospital for further treatment or to convalesce at home.
Unlike private air ambulances, our assistance and the type of medical care provided will be confined to the limitations of the aircraft. Therefore we would only recommend the use of a Private Jet Medical Escort to oversee the comfort of a patient rather than for the carriage of the seriously ill or those in a critical condition (in these cases a private air ambulance would be required).
Our Flight Doctors, Flight Paramedics and Flight Nurses are all available to travel at short notice around the world. They are particularly useful travel companions if you, or a member of your family, is flying or being repatriated after:
