Commercial Airline Repatriation

Medical Escorts

If you have been ill and you have recovered enough to travel on a commercial airline with medical support, Capital Air Ambulance has the solution. Regular flights are still a key process in returning you home, but obtaining medical assistance can be tricky if you don’t know the right avenues to follow. Capital assists in worldwide repatriations from one end of the world to the other, and everywhere in between.

Insurance Medical Flights

We help you by:

Arranging the flights, medical staff and equipment tailored to suit your needs.

  • Obtaining medical clearance with the airline, arranging oxygen in-flight where required.
  • Acquiring mobility assistance at the airport.
  • Arranging ground ambulance or taxi transfers in your current location and at your destination
  • Arranging hospital admission, GP follow up or hospital outpatient appointment if required.
