GVA specailists organized the repatriaton by regular flight

Global Voyager Assistance often get requests to organize the evacuation by regular flight from the USA, Great Britain and other countries. The evacuation of patients by regular flight (or passenger flight) is the most common form of transportation. It supposes transportation of the patient by the plane, evacuation with medical team (ICU Doctor and/or nurse) in standard or business class by one or, if required, several flights from the starting point to the final point of evacuation. If it is necessary to transporting patients in a laying position (for example, repatriation by regular flight after a stroke or heart attack), then the special stretchers (stretcher modules) are installed in the aircraft cabin. Assistance in transportation of patient in case of injuries and oncology is also possible, although such situations require a detailed study and a special approach such as transportation by air ambulance.

Medical repatriation of patients from a number of countries involves complex bureaucratic procedures - even if repatriation of a patient to another city inside such countries is considered. But Global Voyager Assistance has vast practical experience in solving such issues. We carry out medical evacuation from USA, Great Britain and other countries.
