Hospital-to-Hospital Emergency Air Transport

Navair aeromedical transport services can transport ill or injured patients from Australian hospitals to overseas hospitals or vice versa. We will arrange for a fully trained medical team and medically equipped fixed-wing aircraft to retrieve and deliver the patient, providing a fully integrated, end to end care plan including appropriate patient transfer vehicles at each hospital facility.

Commercial Aircraft Medical Escort Flights

Navair Aeromedical can also provide medical escorts for commercial airlines. A patient may be permitted to travel as a regular passenger by commercial airline with a medical escort team who are capable of providing care during the transfer process if and when required. Navair Aeromedical can arrange with the selected airline to remove rows of seats and fit an appropriate stretcher system as required and provide other specialist services for the safe and cost effective transport of patients.

Organ Recipient & Donor Organ Transportation

When time is off the essence, Navair can mobilise with as little as an hours’ notice to retrieve donor organs both from Australian and overseas locations.  Our aeromedical transport services can also transport recipients and one family member to the location of the donor organ. Navair can also assist with ground transport services providing a cost effective alternative to Aeromedical transportation.
