Air Ambulances vs Commercial Flights
On a commercial flight, a patient is transported aboard an aircraft scheduled by a commercial airline, accompanied by a medical professional. On the other hand, an air ambulance is a private flight in which a plane ambulance is chartered to transport the patient.
There are situations where a commercial flight is not a viable solution, such as when the patient is not in a stable condition. Commercial flights require booking a ticket for a scheduled departure time, stopping, and transferring to get to the destination.
Air ambulance jets fly directly to the destination, are available to go to the right place, and can be immediately dispatched. Also, medical flights allow you to fly for treatment in privacy and comfort, with the option of accompanying loved ones on board.
