  • Manila £89,000

Why are these only guide prices?

We pride ourselves on offering high quality air ambulance services at the most competitive prices we can, without any hidden or additional costs. Our air ambulance prices include not only the air ambulance flight itself, but also ground transfers and the arrangement of hospital admission, so everything is taken care of.

Our air ambulance services from Manila to the UK start from around £89,000.

However, the exact cost for an air ambulance from the Philippines depends on a number of factors including:

  • The type and size of aircraft used
  • The number of medics required
  • Your destination, and the distance flown
  • The airport landing fees
  • The distance that ground ambulances need to cover
  • The number of additional people accompanying the patient

Our air ambulance aircraft

When you book an air ambulance from the Philippines, the type of aircraft provided by IAS Medical will depend on the patient’s medical condition, as well as the number of people wishing to accompany them.

Our air ambulance services from The Philippines typically use one of the following aircraft:

Each aircraft used by IAS Medical is fully certified and NHS-approved. All flights are also staffed by expert teams of aero medically qualified doctors and nurses who are experienced in dealing with a variety of conditions and medical emergencies. With IAS Medical, you can rest assured that you will receive the best quality care, and our team will be there at your side along every step of the way.

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.

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.

When repatriating a patient with IAS Medical you will not have to board the aircraft via the main airport terminal and endure all that is associated with it.

IAS Medical will engage the services of an executive handling agent at the airport of departure and arrival. The handling agent is employed to ensure that the transfer between ground ambulance to air ambulance and vice versa is quick, seamless and as easy as possible.

When the ground ambulance conveying the patient arrives at the airport of departure, it will be met by the handling agent, and seamlessly escorted directly to the awaiting air ambulance where the medical team will ensure the patient is transferred safely and comfortably.

The same service is provided to you as a companion and any security requirements will be dealt with by the IAS Medical handling agent.

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.
