Air Ambulance

For patients unable to board a commercial flight, an air ambulance is the safest travel option. We provide medically-configured aircraft, fully loaded with advanced life support systems and staffed by flight-trained medical personnel, to quickly and safely transport patients to a medical facility more equipped to handle their particular needs.

BahamasEvac is comprised of knowledgeable industry professionals with over 22 years combined experience, which has enabled us to help countless patients over the years during a time of emergency or for those with a delicate health condition.

We aid in:

  • Emergency airlift evacuation
  • Hospital transfers
  • Repatriations for those who have had a medical emergency abroad and need transportation back to their home country
  • Mortal remains transportation

Additionally, if your situation is not a medical emergency and you do not require an air ambulance, we also offer the option of arranging a private jet charter with a dedicated nurse or doctor on board for those with delicate health conditions.

We are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week – whether you require an air ambulance or a private charter, we are here to assist you.

FAQs

What is an Air Ambulance?

An air ambulance (also known as an emergency air evacuation plane) is a custom configured aircraft that has medical equipment on board and is used to transport both emergent and non-emergent patients from one location to another. The air ambulance service is needed in times when the level of injury is too severe for ground transport, or when the patient in need is in an area or island that does not offer the level of medical facilities needed to treat the injury or medical emergency.

What are the types of memberships that you offer?

BahamasEvac offers several different packages:

  • Monthly Basis
  • Six month coverage
  • Annual memberships
  • Yacht Packages
  • Short-term visitor coverage

Who is covered in the family plan?

All of our Family Plans cover the applicant and their spouse and children under 18 if applicable.

Additional people can be added to your monthly plan as well for the following fees:

  • $10 for parents
  • $15 per additional child (under 18 years)
  • $20 per additional adult

How long before the plan kicks in?

Membership is active 15 business days after receipt of initial payment.

How many flights can a member take each year?

The number of emergency evacuation flights that a member may take per year depends on the type of membership purchased.

A Basic membership allows for two (2) emergency flights, Gold allows for three (3) emergency flights, and Platinum allows for four (4) emergency flights.

If I use all of my yearly flights and have an emergency, will you still come for me?

In short, yes – however, terms and conditions apply. Please contact one of our representatives for further information.

I don’t have a membership and I need an air ambulance – how does that work?

If you find yourself faced with a medical emergency, and you are in need of BahamasEvac services, but you have not purchased a membership, you may still use our emergency air ambulance service. In this situation we advise that you contact us at 1-242-323-1162 to speak with one of our experienced staff members, who will then assess the situation and give you a quote over the phone – this quote must be paid in full prior to take-off.

One-time air ambulance fees can be very expensive – due to this, BahamasEvac Services created an affordable membership pricing strategy. We wanted to ensure that these life-saving services were as accessible as possible to those who need them the most.

This is another reason why greatly advise purchasing the membership, whether on a long-term basis, or if you are here for a quick visit – it’s a minimal fee for a life-saving service.

Does a membership ensure that BahamasEvac will fly me regardless of the type of medical care I need?

BahamasEvac knows that air ambulances are extremely valuable and therefore we reserve emergency air evacuation planes for those instances when a patient is deemed to be facing a critical or life-threatening injury or illness.

If the medical situation is not deemed an emergency, Bahamas Evac will resort to using a commercial flight to ensure that those who are most in need can receive medical care at the fastest rate possible.

BahamasEvac designates medical emergencies into two (2) different categories:

  • Category 1 – Critical medical emergencies – anything deemed to be life threatening and requiring emergency air ambulance evacuation
  • Category 2 – Priority medical situations (i.e. Not deemed a critical emergency, such as the breaking of bones)

 

Can a family member accompany the patient in the air/ground ambulance:

Yes, depending on the type of injury and amount of space available in the air/ground ambulance – one (1) family member may accompany the patient.

If there is not enough room in the plane, BahamasEvac will send the family member to the destination of the patient via a commercial flight.

What happens if I am injured and hospitalized while away from home?

If you become injured or hospitalized while away from home, BahamasEvac will fly one family member to your location to accompany you during your recovery.

What service does BahamasEvac offer if I pass away while away from home?

In the unfortunate event that you pass away while away from home, a membership with BahamasEvac assures your loved ones that BahamasEvac will both arrange and cover the cost to have the member’s remains returned to the nearest commercial airport closest to the member’s permanent residence.

Does the air ambulance service carry aircraft liability and medical malpractice?

Yes.

What is your estimated response time?

BahamasEvac is based in Nassau, Bahamas – which means that when you have a medical emergency, our team is already on the ground in The Bahamas, ready to activate and assist you.

Our team trains vigorously and our protocols and procedures are strictly adhered to so that in the event of an emergency we are able to deploy as fast as possible. Response time depends on your location and level of emergency.
