The exact amount you’ll pay for an air ambulance to Germany depends on a number of factors, including:
There’s a lot to think about when arranging an air ambulance. To help answer some of your questions, we’ve put together a step-by-step guide to medical repatriation, to help you understand the whole process.

IAS Medical’s air ambulance services fly to and from all major airports in Germany from the UK, including Frankfurt, which is located close to the Hallwang Oncology Clinic.
We pride ourselves on offering a comprehensive, bed-to-bed air ambulance service, taking care of everything on your behalf. Our service includes:
We have a number of air ambulance aircrafts available, including:
The type of aircraft used will depend on the medical condition of the patient and the number of people travelling. Fully trained medical professionals staff each air ambulance.
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 access to comprehensive monitoring and life-support equipment to meet the needs of high dependency and intensive care patients. The standards are consistent with the guidelines set by the Intensive Care Society (Guidelines for the transfer of the critically ill adult, 2002).
All IAS Medical flights are bespoke and tailored to the particular patient needs and the aircraft will carry the correct level of medical equipment that the patient’s medical condition demands.
Paedriatric & Neonatal patients can be medically catered for.
