- You trust your own physician more
- You want to get surgery from a particular medical professional
- You want to be near home
- You have difficulties communicating with the medical personnel
- Your health insurance doesn’t cover the costs of a treatment in Malaysia
You can get first aid locally and then travel back to your own country. It is important to incorporate this safety measure in your plans as you may be required to travel back to your country at a moment’s notice. That is where we come in.

How does an Air Ambulance work?
An air ambulance is an aircraft carrier like helicopter, commercial plane, or private jet that has been retrofitted with medical equipment. This equipment can be specialized according to each individual’s needs. This aircraft can be used to ship patients from one place to another. These planes provide medical repatriation in a timely and comfortable manner. Air ambulances ensure that you can travel from remote areas and take long flights during a medical emergency or after surgery.
What are the common methods of medical repatriation?
Medical evacuation can work with the use of multiple modes of travel such as ambulance jets, or scheduled airliners.
Medical repatriation by ambulance jet
Ambulance jets can be used depending on several factors such as the location of the patient, availability, and patients’ medical condition. These jets are private and equipped with latest medical facilities. Along with a specialized medical staff, these jets provide quick and safe ways to transport ill patients. In most cases, you can also be accompanied by a loved one.
Medical repatriation by a commercial flight
Commercial flights can be used for medical evacuation as well. You can either travel lying down or sitting in a business class seat. Stretchers can be used for lying down. These stretchers can be easily accommodated in commercial flights by removing some of the equipment and seats on the commercial airliner. All of this is done under the supervision of medical staff that will travel with you.
