Despite long distances of up to 10,000 kilometres, return transports from the USA can quickly be arranged by us at any time. Due to our long-standing expertise, we are able to swiftly carry out these kinds of patient transports. With these sorts of distances, we always look for a financially feasible solution. For several patients with less severe conditions, transportation via a commercial flight is therefore worth considering. In this instance, we install a stretcher in a private section of the aircraft and provide an experienced aviation medic to accompany the transport. We only resort to using an air ambulance jet in the gravest of circumstances, as was the case with the aforementioned patient.
The ambulance flight from San Francisco International Airport to Cologne/Bonn Airport went smoothly as ever, and the patient’s relatives were able to receive him in hospital a short while later. If you ever find yourself in an emergency situation where one of your relatives needs to be transferred home from a hospital located far away, remember that we are available 24 hours a day and will present you with all available options for a return transport at short notice.
