In our air ambulance, we can safely medevac patients, even those who require intensive medical care. Patients who are traveling with us receive excellent care and arrive at their destination  as quickly as possible . Highly experienced, specialist medical crew alongside intensive care physicians, accompany patients during their  medical repatriation : in the event of a medical emergency, they can intervene immediately.

It is even possible to  adjust cabin pressure  in our medevac air ambulance to the air pressure on the ground, providing a so-called  sea ​​level flight , which is necessary when transporting patients with certain medical conditions like  anemiapneumothorax  or ileus.
