India has one of the fastest developing tourism sectors in the world, and over 6% of the nation’s GDP (gross domestic product) comes from tourism alone. From a wide range of exotic holiday-destinations and world-famous business districts to states offering medical tourism are all responsible for the influx of foreign travellers to the country. According to a survey, Tamil Nadu is the most visited state, followed by Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi.
There are also a large number of Indian travellers taking outbound flights to foreign destinations around the world for leisure, business or medical purpose. With the rise in the traffic of people flying in and out of India, there’s also a hike in the need for emergency medical repatriation flights to/from India. While we ideally think of coming back home with wonderful experiences, fond memories, and great accomplishments, the real world is unfortunately not always so easy-going.
Why do you need medical repatriation?
Every year hundreds of foreign travellers, visiting India fall terribly sick or face an accident making it impossible for them to take a commercial flight back henceforth leaving medical flights as the only option to reach home safely. While travel insurance or health insurance may cover some of the medical expenses, it might not include or only partially include the cost of an air ambulance to or from India.
So, whether you’re stuck in an Indian hospital or wish to get back home; or are coming back to India to be treated by your trusted Indian doctor, we will make sure your medical repatriation or evacuation is as swift and seamless possible through our global air medical services network.
