We understand your concerns when needing to transport your loved ones. At Skymed Aeromedical we can tailor a solution to suit your particular medical air transport needs. Our medical patient transportation services ensures easy bookings and optimal care to guarantee the best services with a simple and stress-free experience.
The process of a typical medical air transport involves the following:
- The client contacts us to discuss the medical situation of person(s) needing transport, including their current location and destination.
- We enquire about the patient’s condition and needs, including their current and previous health status and the need for medical equipment such as oxygen, or unable to sit up and therefore requiring a stretcher.
- A case manager will suggest the most suitable medical patient transport solution and a quote
Our Skymed Aeromedical team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We always are available to discuss any questions, concerns, or details about our range of air ambulance and patient transport solutions.
Whether it is local or interstate, the Skymed Aeromedical fleet has many private aircraft options for private patient transport services to meet individual needs and budget considerations. All planes are equipped with a stretcher and medical equipment, making patient tranport ambulance reliable and effective.
Commercial Air Escort
If the patient is able to sit upright during take-off and landing, they may be accompanied and monitored on a major commercial airline (such as Qantas), in the comfort of First Class or Business Class. The commercial air escort will be one or more of our highly trained and experienced Skymed Aeromedical professionals, who will provide patient-focused care and assistance and tend to their every medical need.
This is a safe and effective mode of medical air transport on a commercial airline if the patient isn’t able to sit up for take-off and landing. Comfortably located at the back of the plane, the patient and Skymed Aeromedical professional(s) have the space, comfort and privacy.
