How to organise your medevac flight

In order to provide the patient and family with the best and quickest medevac service, it is critical that the contact person or case manager provides our Flight Team with all available information on the patient’s condition, including:

  • Patient’s medical record
  • Patient’s treating hospital/doctor and contact
  • Patients receiving hospital/doctor and contact

Our expert team can then organise the quickest medical transfer based on a bed-to-bed service. 

Our Flight Team will be available for 24 hour contact with the family and the doctors.

Call PrivateFly on +44 (0)20 7100 6960 (24 hours) or contact us online for immediate help and advice.

How much does a medevac cost?

PrivateFly’s goal is to provide the highest quality medical transport services at the best possible price. Price of your medevac flight is based on a number of factors including:

  • The medical condition of the patient and treatment required
  • The aircraft type
  • The distance of the flight

Popular air ambulance aircraft

In Europe, there are a number of specialist, accredited aircraft operators that we work with at PrivateFly, to provide clients with the most appropriate air ambulance for their specific needs. These aircraft have been specially-adapted and approved for use as medical transport.

Aircraft are manned by a medical flight crew including a doctor and/or a nurse and carry extensive medical equipment including respirators, medication, an ECG, CPR equipment and stretchers.

Aircraft models that are most popular for medical flights in Europe include:

The Learjet 45 - popular for shorter medevac flights of up to 3 hours.

The Challenger 605/650 - popular for longer range flights or for patients who require more cabin space. This aircraft also includes an option for a ramp for easier cabin access.
