Can Family Members or Pets fly with patients during Air Ambulance transport? What else?

The number of passengers is based on the aircraft, patient’s health, and length of transport. Typically 1-2 family members can fly along with the patient.


Generally there is room for 1-2 carry-on-pieces of luggage. Shipping can be arranged for all non-essential items including regular and electric wheelchairs, portable oxygen tanks and over-sized suitcases.


Meals are normally offered for patients and family members on flights over 3.5 hours.


Pet accommodations must be determined in advanced. Vaccinations and a pet carrier is required.
