All you need to know about an air ambulance!
Air ambulance services transport patients from an accident site to a hospital or between hospitals, allowing patients to receive medical care at a specialized facility, such as a burn, cardiac, or trauma center.
Helicopters and fixed-wing airplanes are two types of air ambulances used for medical transports. An air ambulance service uses helicopters for short-haul emergency flights, especially for trauma-related emergencies when time is of the essence. On the other hand, fixed-wing airplanes are used for long-distance emergencies and medical transports. In this guide, we will talk about airplanes as air ambulances. Airplanes are managed by companies, cities, and state emergency management systems.
Air ambulance providers compete primarily based on reliability, safety, price, airplane availability, fleet configuration, experience, medical capability, and service quality. In this guide, we will give you all the essential information you need on air ambulances. Read on!

When do you need an Air ambulance in India?
Repatriation and evacuation
Our air ambulance repatriation services are frequently required whenever travellers who travel abroad experience injuries, illnesses or traumas and need to return home for proper care. Indeed, the essence of a medical repatriation mission is to transport a person back to their country of origin where they can have access to better medical care, but also where language is not an impediment and family and friends are closer. At RED Air Guardian, our medical crew is experienced in repatriating patients safely back via air ambulances. Both similar and distinct from medical repatriation missions, medical evacuation flights, also known as medevac flights, are also required whenever someone is injured or ill. However, rather than transferring them back to their home country, medevac flights consist in transporting the patient from their home country to a foreign country to benefit from another level of care or to have access to sometimes world-class medical care.
We offer a comprehensive bed-to-bed service to ensure your safety during your aeromedical repatriation/evacuation. Our service includes not only medical flights but also ground transportation services after landing and rescue vehicles available in case of an emergency. We are always prepared to provide customized patient transportation services and take necessary steps to reduce waiting times, making the transit as smooth as possible. Our friendly staff can provide ground transportation services for you, too, so that you’re never alone in a foreign country.
Advanced Life Support
Travel care transports via airplanes are effective and safe because they have experienced medical staff equipped with basic and advanced life support tools. For instance, if a person needs vital assistance, such as breathing, while travelling, they can use an air ambulance.
Spinal Injury Patients
Spinal injuries and conditions, such as degenerative disc disease, bone fractures, scoliosis, herniated discs, and neuropathic pain, can cause a lot of discomfort and frustration for patients. Spinal pain worsens when one has to travel in a passenger airplane for open-back or minimally invasive surgery. In emergency, please call 1800-121-911-91
