International Repatriations: Requests + Information
SkyAngels secondary remit is to help repatriate British Citizens in distress abroad.
This can be supporting the patient and family, contacting the hospitals aboard and at home to full mission planning of the repatriation.
We can now offer full repatriation of the deceased, which is one of the most difficult missions within our remit.
Flights are paid for either by the patients travel insurance or families and friends if there is no insurance cover. Over the last few years, our crews have even paid for some of the missions themselves!
We also place our advanced medical crews onto commercial airlines to complete our mission to support the general public.
SkyAngels can also task preferred partner air ambulance aircraft, helicopters and private road ambulances across the world at a moments notice.
Over the last 12 months, we have been asked to support more than 50 families with their repatriations from countries including France, Spain, Holland, Saudi Arabia, America, Australia, Qatar, Bulgaria, South Africa and Bali.
International AeroMedical Requests:
All international aeromedical flight requests for our charity to help is given due consideration by our HQ Crew and Trustees.
If your request falls into our charity remit and subject to full approval from our HQ Crew, SkyAngels Air Ambulance will consider your request and if possible either offer full or partial support. This support is subject to due diligence, aircraft and crew availability.
Currently, due to the number of international requests for repatriations for patients without travel insurance, we will offer a fee-based quote. Any surplus will be passed to our charity (SkyAngels Air Ambulance) to help future requests.
We will offer a number of mission options....
- Dedicated Air Ambulance Aircraft
- Aeromedical Escort on an Airline
- Road Ambulance Transfer ( European Cover )
