Discounted Flights, Empty Legs or Connecting flights saves you money!
It is Jet Rescue Air Ambulance Goal to control costs and still maintain the highest possible level of service. Because an air ambulance flight is costly, the most effective way to achieve this is to put multiple medical transports together.
When you call to request a quote we will begin the process of looking for a backhaul or empty leg. What this means is to utilize the aircraft in both directions vs one client having to pay for the aircraft to fly round trip with one leg empty.
How we do that?
We go out to our regular clients such as assistance and insurance companies, hospitals and other open requests to see if your medical transport can be combined with another. We work diligently to reduce your cost. It is easier to do this, once you have defined a tentative date to fly, or if your dates are open.
Will the reduction of cost reduce the quality of care?
NO! As explained before the total cost of the air ambulance flight is divided between 2 parties. All air ambulances are staffed with Critical Care Nurses and Paramedics. If our Medical Director deems necessary we will have a Doctor on board.
Jet Rescue specializes in complex medical repatriations including European and Pacific Rim Air Ambulance Service.
Strategically Located Air Ambulance Partners
The most costly part of an air ambulance flight is the operation of the aircraft. As the distance increases, the cost increases. If you call an air ambulance provider that does not have an aircraft located in close proximity to your patient, they must fly a great number of ferrying miles (empty miles) to reach the patient, which adds to the air ambulance cost. In order to provide a true worldwide capability, we have spent a tremendous amount of time and resources to locate, identify, qualify and approve only the best air ambulance providers in the world. This, in turn, allows Jet Rescue Air Ambulance to respond to you with a timely response by using a nearby air ambulance aircraft that saves you money.
Jet Rescue Air Ambulance has developed an air ambulance network with Strategic Partners in the United States and around the world. Daily, Jet Rescue Air Ambulance receives real-time information of connecting flights, that these partners have available. This provides Jet Rescue Air Ambulance with an excellent opportunity to save you money on your air ambulance or medical transport by joining your need with an existing flight. If this is accomplished you save money due to fewer miles flown.
