Medical aviation for transportation of bedridden patients
Renting a private plane to transport bedridden patients is sometimes extremely necessary in cases where urgency is important and other methods of transportation are not suitable. Medical aircraft allows passengers with limited mobility to be quickly transported anywhere in the world, which is often required to save their lives. Private Jet UK is ready to provide the best flight conditions and arrange a flight as soon as possible. The type of aircraft is selected based on the complexity of the route, its range, the condition of the passenger and the wishes of the customer. Our catalogue contains more than 24 medical aircraft, as well as about 5,600 business jets adapted for the transportation of bedridden patients.
When it is necessary to rent an airplane
Medical flights for the transportation of heavy and recumbent passengers on business aircraft are necessary in several cases:
- There are no tickets for regular flights in the right direction. It should also be taken into account that the purchase of a ticket for a disabled citizen in a serious condition on a state airline plane must be reported within at least 3 days in advance. This time is required in order to prepare a seat in the salon and solve a number of organizational issues. The need for these measures completely disappears if the patient is transported by private plane - there is the possibility of emergency transportation;
- It is necessary to deliver the patient to the clinic for treatment or surgery within a few hours or 2-3 days. The operators of our company give permission for departure in 3-5 hours in case of urgent need;
- The patient cannot be surrounded by other people. This may be due to both the infectious nature of his disease and psychoemotional instability.
Business jets are often rented to deliver a patient for surgery or treatment to clinics in major foreign countries. Sometimes there is a reverse necessity, that is, transportation is required in order to bring a bedridden patient home.
Features of flights with bedridden patients
A private plane for transportation of a seriously ill person requires careful flight preparation. Such a flight differs from the usual one primarily in the fact that the passenger is accompanied by a medical worker or a team of doctors. The task of the medical team is to monitor the patient's condition, conduct routine procedures, and provide emergency assistance in case of deterioration of well-being.
We are trying to make the flight as comfortable and safe as possible for the patient, and that’s why compliance with several rules is required:
- The flight should take place in a calm environment, that is, without unnecessary shaking. Only an experienced pilot who is able to smoothly overcome air holes and keep turbulence under control can ensure compliance with this condition;
- Doctors accompanying the patient should be able to provide assistance in non-standard conditions. The medical team requires endurance, calmness and high qualifications;
- The board must be equipped with medical equipment. The equipment of the devices is selected depending on the severity of the patient. In serious cases, emergency resuscitation may be required, so there must be life support devices and a defibrillator in the cabin. The need for full equipment disappears only if health emergencies are excluded;
- The cabin should be as spacious as possible. It is difficult to provide medical assistance in a confined space, especially if the cabin is cluttered with luggage. Therefore, aircraft with a separate luggage compartment are more suitable for renting seriously ill people.
Business jets are carefully checked at the stage of preparation for a sanitary flight. The slightest malfunction is a refusal of admission to departure. The salons of such aircraft are thoroughly disinfected after preparing for the reception of a passenger with limited mobility. Surface treatment and air purification reduce the risk of infection with dangerous microorganisms, which can be disastrous for a weakened person.
Renting a medical aircraft immediately with the crew and doctors is the best option since the patient will be taken care of by a team that understands all the nuances of transporting passengers with serious illnesses. Our company has its own staff of pilots and cooperates with qualified resuscitators, anesthesiologists and therapists, that is, those doctors who know everything about emergency care.
Aircraft variants used for medical purposes
The state services involved in the transportation of seriously ill patients have special sanitary aviation at their disposal, that is, aircraft equipped with stationary medical equipment. There are 3 types of aircraft used in business aviation:
- Ordinary business jets. They can be rented if the patient's condition allows him/her to be placed on a sofa or in a semi-sitting position on an armchair. In a private plane, it will be convenient for the relatives of the patient, as well as accompanying doctors. It is best to take a plane with a wide cabin where you can stand up to your full height;
- Ambulance plane. A flight on such an aircraft will cost the most, but sometimes, this is the only acceptable option due to the severity of the passenger's condition. The board is completely re-equipped for passengers with limited mobility, that is, it is similar to the interior of a mobile ICU in terms of design, arrangement of furniture and equipment. In such conditions, it is possible to provide any assistance including surgical intervention;
- Cargo plane. It is often used to evacuate victims from the scene of an emergency. A cargo board is rented for the transportation of seriously ill passengers if the unnecessary movement of the patient is undesirable. In this case, the patient is taken into the cargo compartment right in the ambulance and spends the entire flight in it. This method of movement is also convenient because the passenger is promptly transported to the clinic after arriving at the destination.
Medical planes are distinguished by optimal conditions for the transportation of seriously ill patients. Companies specializing in such air transportation always have 2-4 sanitary boards available. If finances allow, then this option is the safest. However, if the estimated cost of the flight is limited, then you can rent classic private planes. If necessary, they are easily converted for a sanitary flight, that is, a part of the seats is removed to free up space, and the equipment necessary for maintaining the functions of the passenger's body is brought into the cabin.
The cost of a medical flight
You can find out the exact cost of a medical plane flight in a specific direction after submitting an application. The operator will specify the most important information - the patient's health status, the number of accompanying persons, the endpoint of the route. Based on these data, a business jet is selected and the price of the service is calculated. As for the time, it takes about 20 - 60 minutes.
The cost of a sanitary flight depends on several variables. These are:
- The type of aircraft used. The price of renting a business liner or a long-haul jet will be more expensive compared to renting medium or small aircraft;
- A need to be accompanied by doctors. Not all seriously ill patients need continuous monitoring of their well-being by resuscitators and therapists, and the services of these doctors are the most expensive. If the passenger's condition is not critical, then even flight attendants or specially hired orderlies can help him in flight;
- Flight distance. The further away the arrival airport is, the more expensive the cost of the flight will be;
- Additional services. Individual meals onboard, transfer, accommodation reservation are paid according to a separate price list.
Private Jets UK is ready to arrange the flight of seriously ill passengers to any airport in Europe, America, Russia, Asia and the Middle East. The board is selected taking into account all the wishes of the customer. If necessary, we make transportation combined, that is, with the participation of a helicopter. Such transport allows you to pick up passengers from hard-to-reach places or, on the contrary, deliver them to places where there are no conditions for the plane to land. The delivery of a private jet is possible within 3-4 hours after the request (if you have the business jet you need in this location). Sanitary flights involve pilots with extensive experience, so the flight always takes place in a comfortable environment for passengers.

Stages of flight preparation
A business jet flight is carefully prepared. The whole organization of the flight consists of several stages:
- Planning. At this stage, the request received from the customer is processed, the most suitable aircraft are selected, legal issues and flight safety issues are resolved;
- A contract is concluded. The contract specifies the obligations of the parties, the route schedule, departure dates, and cost. The agreement is drawn up in two copies, the first remains with the air broker, the other is for the client. The payment is possible in any way that suits the customer;
- Ensuring the flight. This is one of the most important stages of flight organization. The air broker coordinates the receipt of slots, submits requests to the aviation services for departure and landing, looks for suitable VIP terminals;
- Flying in ideal conditions. After signing the contract, passengers of charter flights are only required to arrive at the airport on time, board, and spend time in the sky in a pleasant atmosphere.
If necessary, air brokers will arrange a transfer from the arrival airport, book a hotel or find the best accommodation in the private sector.

How to pay for a flight and refund money for a failed flight
Payment for the aircraft lease is carried out after the signing of the contract. You can deposit cash or make a wire transfer. In some situations, an invoice is more convenient, but in any case, our company allows the client to choose the payment method that is more profitable for him/her.
If the scheduled flight is canceled at the client’s request, the funds won’t be returned in full. This is quite understandable since certain costs for the organization of the flight were already on the part of the air broker. However, our company tries to make sure that the client loses as little as possible. In those situations, when the lease is canceled due to our fault, which fortunately happens extremely rarely, the funds are returned in full.
You can find out all the conditions for renting business jets by phone or by sending a request to our company's email.
