A question that is often asked by family members is, “Can I fly on the Air Ambulance too?” The answer, under normal circumstances, is “Yes”!

All IAS Medical air ambulances have the capacity to comfortably carry one companion with the patient.

However, IAS Medical recommends that critical ill patients travel alone to avoid worry and distress for the companion.

The decision to carry a companion is one that rests with our Medical Director and depends on the medical condition of the patient.

IAS Medical has a wide range of air ambulances and ground ambulances located throughout the UK and Internationally.

Our pilots and medics are on-call 24 hours a day and for urgent repatriation cases we can organise same day repatriation flights.

IAS Medical are able to respond extremely quickly to move NHS transplant teams and are on stand-by around the clock to deploy an aircraft in as little as 45 minutes.

IAS Medical take pride in the high standards we set for patient care.

The air ambulance aircraft we use are fitted with complete medical stretcher systems that incorporate medical oxygen, suction and electrical power outlets for medical equipment.

Therefore, space on board the aircraft is limited and it is recommended that luggage is restricted to one piece of hand luggage per person weighing not more than 15 kgs.
