Swift Air Ambulance Services encompasses a program that is designed and capable of transporting a patient to and from anywhere in the world. Our flight coordinators are extremely experienced in handling all the necessary arrangements of international travel, from working with foreign consulates and customs, arranging ground transportation to and from facilities, and handling all details involved with the medical transport.
With a team of professionals and experts, we have built strong professional relationships with private sector, government and the Health Sector, as well as with case managers and social workers, insurance providers, international assistance companies, and patient families. Our medical aircraft are equipped with state of the art avionics allowing us to fly worldwide.
For patients that are in stable condition, and are able to be seated in a commercial aircraft, flying with an Swift Air Ambulance medical escort is a cost-effective and safe alternative to utilizing a private air ambulance. We will perform a medical assessment prior to arranging the trip to ensure that it is safe for the patient to fly on a commercial aircraft.
Upon approval, we will schedule the trip and purchase seats, arrange for ground ambulance transport on both ends, and take care of all necessary paperwork with the airlines, as well as with the sending and receiving facility. During flight, the patient will be accompanied by an RN and/or Flight Paramedic, who will administer all necessary medical care, medications, and assist with any other patient needs.
The medical escort will also assist with the boarding, de-planing, security clearance, and any other issues related to the travel. Once the trip is complete, the medical escort will accompany the patient to the receiving facility, and provide their post-flight report to ensure a safe and smooth transition for the patient. Flying with a medical escort can be an extremely economical alternative to a private air ambulance, and our medical escorts are capable of accompanying patients anywhere in the world.
