Pre-scheduled flights are a special service provided by Tyrol Air Ambulance to transport more than one patient at a time home quickly and at economic prices. In summer, the date of the flight is announced a week in advance and the destinations are adjusted to fit requirements.
Prescheduled flights offer a range of advantages. Because they are scheduled in advance the whole transport procedure can be conducted quickly. Customers face lower costs because up to six patients can be flown home at a time. The aircraft is equipped to meet patients’ precise needs. Patients can be transported reclined, seated, with or without leg elevation and, if necessary, with a companion. The selection of onboard medical personnel is determined by the severity of the injury or illness. This is a decisive advantage compared to regular airlines who often refuse to transport patients with injuries.
Pre-scheduled flights can be booked via our Alarm Center. At that time we require initial medical information on the patient in order to assess whether he or she is fit for transport. Confirmation is issued once the medical documents have been reviewed.
Insurance companies also have the option of customised pre-scheduled flights, allowing them to book an entire aircraft for their clients located in the same region.
(Geneva/Innsbruck, 20/05/13) On Monday 20th May, Tyrol Air Ambulance received the Platinum Safety of Flight Award for its record of 50 years of flight operations without accident. This is the highest international award for flight safety and was presented by the European Business Aviation Association (EBEAA) on the occasion of the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBEACE) in Geneva. It is the first time an air ambulance was honoured with this award.
„This award underlines our commitment to highest safety standards. Already in 2010 and 2011 our safety records were recognised with the Silver and Gold Safety of Flight Awards. We are really proud that we were able to demonstrate our excellent standards also this year again“, Manfred Helldoppler, Managing Director, expressing his satisfaction. „Our company made safety an important part of the organisational culture. We also want to set new standards in quality and safety requirements in future“, explains Helldoppler further.
Tyrol Air Ambulance
The company’s history dates back to 1958, when the company ‚Aircraft Innsbruck’ was founded. In 1963 the first „Public Air Transport License“ was granted for aircraft and helicopters, which were also used for ambulance flights. In 1978 the company was renamed as Tyrol Air Ambulance. The team of the internationally renowned air ambulance accompanies injured or sick patients back home or to a hospital with adequate medical care. Each year the company takes care of around three thousand patients at the highest medical level. Thanks to a global network and cooperations, the deployment range of Tyrol Air Ambulance is virtually unlimited.
Patient has been carried out with an ICU unit including intubation. The patient was breathing spontaneously and was given an additional oxygen as required.
