Accompanying Your Family Member

Passenger Information

If at all possible on private air ambulance trips, one to two family members or significant others may accompany the patient at no additional cost. The patient's medical requirements, such as the patient's condition or the need for additional medical staff or equipment, are always the first priority. All air medical services and medical flights are customized for each patient transport.
