When you book an air ambulance from the UAE, the type of aircraft we’ll send will depend on the medical condition of the patient who will be travelling.
For our UAE air ambulance services, we typically use one of the following aircraft:
All of our air ambulances are fully certified and staffed with experienced and aero medically qualified doctors and nurses, so you can be assured that you will receive the best quality care.
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.
