Choosing an air ambulance or medical flight provider is a critical decision for a patient and their loved ones. And PrivateFly has extensive experience in arranging medical evacuation and medical repatriation services.
Our clients include individuals, businesses, insurance companies and private clinics.
We offer a rapid 24-hour response service and can arrange an air ambulance, medevac or medical transportation service for patients and their families, medical care providers and private insurance companies.
How to organise your medevac flight
In order to provide the patient and family with the best and quickest medevac service, it is critical that the contact person or case manager provides our Flight Team with all available information on the patient’s condition, including:
- Patient’s medical record
- Patient’s treating hospital/doctor and contact
- Patients receiving hospital/doctor and contact
Our expert team can then organise the quickest medical transfer based on a bed-to-bed service.
Our Flight Team will be available for 24 hour contact with the family and the doctors.

- The medical condition of the patient and treatment required
- The aircraft type
- The distance of the flight
Popular air ambulance aircraft
In Europe, there are a number of specialist, accredited aircraft operators that we work with at PrivateFly, to provide clients with the most appropriate air ambulance for their specific needs. These aircraft have been specially-adapted and approved for use as medical transport.
Aircraft are manned by a medical flight crew including a doctor and/or a nurse and carry extensive medical equipment including respirators, medication, an ECG, CPR equipment and stretchers.
Aircraft models that are most popular for medical flights in Europe include:
The Learjet 45 - popular for shorter medevac flights of up to 3 hours.
The Challenger 605/650 - popular for longer range flights or for patients who require more cabin space. This aircraft also includes an option for a ramp for easier cabin access.
