Accompanying Your Family Member
If at all possible on private air ambulance trips, one to two (1-2) family members or significant others may accompany the patient at no additional cost. The patient's medical requirements, such as the patient's condition or the need for additional medical staff or equipment are always the first priority. All air medical services and medical flights are customized for each patient transport.
Patient Transfer Guidelines
Space on an air ambulance aircraft is very limited due to the large amount of medical equipment carried on board. Luggage is limited to two (2) small carry-on sized bags (total). All other luggage must be shipped prior to transport. Air Ambulance Specialists will be happy to assist passengers in arranging the shipment of excess baggage. All costs associated with excess baggage shipment are the responsibility of the patient or client.
AASI Luggage Policy
All persons traveling on an international air ambulance flight must provide the following information prior to departure:
- Full Name
- Relation to patient
- Passport number and expiration date
- Date of birth
- Visa information, if required
