However, the exact cost of an air ambulance from Thailand will depend on a number of factors, including:

  • 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

Where we fly from

We repatriate patients from all major airports in Thailand, so you can arrange flights from the location which is closest for the patient. We frequently provide air ambulances from the capital of Thailand, Bangkok, which is the country’s largest and most accessible city, as well as Chiang Mai, and a number of other locations.

What does it include?

When booking an air ambulance with IAS Medical, you will benefit from our fully comprehensive bed-to-bed service which aims to maximise patient safety at every step of the way.

  • Providing highly trained medics to accompany the patient to their destination

Our air ambulance aircraft

When you book an air ambulance from Thailand, the type of aircraft provided by IAS Medical will depend on the medical condition of the patient who will be travelling and the number of people who wish to travel with them.

For our air ambulance services from Thailand, we typically use one of the following aircraft:

All of our aircraft are fully certified and staffed with highly experienced doctors and nurses who are aero medically qualified. With our fully equipped aircraft and expertly trained medical teams, you can be assured that you will receive the best quality care at all times, whether on the ground or in the air.

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.
