For a patient from Pakistan afflicted with cancer, we recently carried out an intensive-care transport by plane from Great Britain back to Lahore. Following the operation and months of treatment at a specialised hospital located in Newcastle, the medical treatment was to be continued in her home country.
In the run-up of the air-ambulance flight, our medical team verified the ability to transport the patient base on the medical report of the hospital in Great Britain that performed the treatment. Immediately following our appointment, we started planning the flight and applied for the required overflight- and other authorisations. For this repatriation from abroad, we made an ambulance aircraft Bombardier Learjet 55 equipped with intensive-care facilities available at the airport in Newcastle that brought the patient and her companion to Lahore. At Alama Iqbal International airport, the patient was picked up by another medical team and brought to the specified hospital in Pakistan by ambulance. The patient’s family was infinitely grateful for our efforts and the successful repatriation from abroad.
