Because Global Air Ambulance offers a range of patient transfer services, we can provide you a choice between faster air ambulance and other medically viable options such as long distance ground transports. Global Air Ambulance provides multiple patient transfer options to meet your financial needs.

Air Ambulance:

Private aircraft outfitted as flying intensive care units with medical staff, equipment, and medicines to meet the medical needs of the most critical of patients.

International Airline Medical Stretcher:

Out of New York, multiple international airlines allow Global Air Ambulance to place a stretcher in the rear of the aircraft to bring patients onboard for transport to international destinations.

Airline Medical Escorts:

For patients that can sit, Global Air Ambulance can assist patients with registered nurses in first class or business class seats to transfer anywhere in the United States or worldwide.

International seats lay flat to allow patients to sleep for most of the duration of the trip.

Long-distance Ground Ambulance or RV service:

For patients that must lay down, cost can be a factor. Many patients can be transported by ground at less cost than air ambulance.

Multiple Air Ambulance Aircraft Options: 

From New York, We fly most patients domestically by LearJet Ambulances.  The LearJet allows for two family members to accompany the patient, flies higher and faster than a commercial jet, and can travel to most destinations within the United States without a fuel stop.  

For international trips, you may prefer the larger Gulfstream Air Ambulance.  The Gulf Stream can fly longer between fuel stops, which may reduce the number of fuel stops between New York and your international destination.  The Gulf Stream ambulance jet also contains a full lavatory and standing head room, making a more comfortable international flight for the passengers. 

Call Global Air Ambulance now at 800-948-1220 to discuss your patient transport needs.  We guarantee to give you all viable options to safely and quickly transport your patient to and from New York from anywhere in the world.

Medical Repatriation and Medevac from New York to Worldwide Destinations

International patients can choose between medically viable options of air ambulance, airline medical stretcher transports and airline medical escorts.  Global Air Ambulance flies private air ambulance aircraft between New York and every country on Earth that is not at war.  For some patients, including those on vents, air ambulance is the only medically available option.  Call our case managers at 800-948-1220 and we can discuss your patient’s medical needs.

However, some patients qualify to be flown laying down from and to New York to destinations worldwide on commercial airlines in business class seats that recline fully to a laying position.  With more than 70 airlines operating out of JFK Airport, we typically have multiple flight options for your patient.  For those patients that qualify, airline medical escort is much less expensive than air ambulance.
