Malaysia is a beautiful country with sandy beaches, verdant jungles, and amazing cities that offer parks and gardens next to towering skyscrapers. Malaysia also has a robust medical system that makes it one of the top destinations in the world for medical tourism, with more than 1 million foreigners seeking treatment in Penang and Kuala Lumpur hospitals every year.
Why would a foreigner take an air ambulance to Malaysia?
If you are in need of medical care, you might consider traveling to Malaysia to receive high-quality care at affordable prices. In that case, traveling in an air ambulance can be a good option for you. An air ambulance to Malaysia can provide top-quality care while you’re en route to receive treatment in one of their excellent private hospitals.
All doctors in Malaysia speak English, many even being trained in Great Britain, Australia, or the United States. Hospitals all have specialists able to see patients right away rather than having to wait for an appointment weeks or months later as in other countries. The hospitals are also outfitted with high-quality medical equipment that undergoes regular inspections. And in contrast to other western countries, medical costs are relatively inexpensive even for foreign visitors.
Why would a Malaysian want an air ambulance home?
We don’t like to think of it, but injury and illness does happen while traveling. If you are from Malaysia and have a medical emergency while traveling or living in another country, you might want to take an air ambulance to Malaysia, so you can receive treatment there. The quality of care in Malaysia may be better than where you find yourself, and you might be more comfortable in a Malaysian hospital where you’re familiar with the medical system and where the doctors can communicate with you in your native language. Additionally, whether traveling or living abroad, you may have family and close friends in Malaysia who can help support you through your treatment and recovery. If for any of these reasons or another, you want to travel home during a medical emergency, an air ambulance to Malaysia can offer the safest, most comfortable form of travel for you.
Air ambulance in a private jet or on a scheduled airliner
An air ambulance is any form of aircraft that offers medical care while in transit. This can be accomplished with either private medical aircraft or by medical escorted flights on commercial airliners. Which is the right choice for you depends on your specific needs. If you are in stable condition and able to travel sitting upright, Business Class seats can be booked on a commercial flight for you and an accompanying doctor or paramedic who will provide first aid if needed and can offer emotional support during a stressful flight. If you are in stable condition, but only able to travel lying down, seats can be removed from a scheduled flight to create a space for a stretcher and medical staff who can monitor your health during the flight.
If you require more space or more intensive care while en route, you can fly in a private ambulance jet equipped with the latest medical equipment and accompanied by a team of medical personnel. A private ambulance jet provides the best possible in-flight medical care as well as the shortest lead times. Whatever option is best for you, an air ambulance to Malaysia is the safest way for patients to travel.
