Domestic and international services are provided with a fully equipped jet engine ambulance aircraft. During the transfer, 1 doctor and 1 emergency medical technician or paramedic are on duty. Under appropriate conditions, 1 accompanying ambulance can be boarded.
Equipment in aircraft ambulance and helicopter ambulance
The patient’s medical report is evaluated and, if necessary, the patient’s attending physician is consulted to obtain the necessary information for the transfer.
Certain permissions are required for domestic and international flights (as per civil aviation rules). For domestic flights, this time is 1 hour on average.
For international flights, an application is made for permission with the passport information of the patient and his/her relatives and the permi-permit process is initiated. Depending on the destination country, this time may vary between 1-4 hours. In addition, since “war zone supplementary insurance” is taken for flights to risky regions, this affects the duration and fee.
During the transfer, 1 companion can be taken according to the medical condition of the patient.
The land ambulance at the pick-up and drop-off point is organized by us if necessary.
Our air ambulance aircraft has cabin pressure and patients with cardiovascular, cerebrovascular diseases and lung problems can be safely transferred.
This service is provided by Dolunay Ambulance Inc.
In the case of patients whose general condition is good but who cannot be transported on a scheduled plane sitting or without medical personnel, a stretcher is placed in the back of the scheduled plane with the permission of the airline company and transportation is provided in the company of a doctor, nurse or emergency medical technician.
In these transfers, depending on the patient’s condition, there is a monitor, pulse oximeter, emergency bag and all emergency medications. When needed, oxygen support is provided to the patient with oxygen cylinders requested from the Airline Company.
In patient transportation by scheduled airplane, 12/24 hours are usually required for stretcher request and the aircraft for that line must be capable of carrying a stretcher.
In stretcher flights, the patient enters the apron by land ambulance and arrives at the back door of the plane and is taken to the plane with a stretcher with the help of truck elevators waiting here.
Such equipment is available at all airports in our country. The patient is taken to the land ambulance in the same way at the destination airport.
On connecting flights, if the waiting period is long, the patient is followed up in the clinics at the airport and then taken to the plane.
In patients who are transferred without a stretcher and accompanied by a medical escort, they are taken to the plane with a wheelchair, and their boarding and disembarkation is again by truck elevator.
