Charter an aircraft is the best way to set an medical flight, either in the context of public health crisis, repatriation, or any urgent flight involving a patient needing medical assistance and / or medical equipment onboard.
Indeed, medical crew will be onboard, and the aircraft type is selected based on the peculiar needs (stretcher, Intensive care unit and respirator, etc…).
This kind of flight can be launch on a very short notice and can take-off from any country in the World, particularly from secondary or remote airports.
We are working on a daily basis with airlines able to launch a flight on a very short notice, enabling us to provide in most urgent cases a first proposal in the hour.
For some specific destinations, local authorities permissions are mandatory (such as trafic rights), and would be the bottleneck, yet, in most cases, the aircraft will be able to take-off within two hours after your confirmation, either to join your starting point, or for your trip if it is already in place.
Contrary to commercial flights where each booking as to be linked with the identity of each passenger, a charter flight enable to book the flight only based on the expected number of passengers and / or volume and characteristics of the freight (size, dangerous goods, animals, etc…).
Exact number of passengers as well as their details and / or the freight details has to be confirmed a few days before the flight, and can be amended up to the last minutes before take-off.
Yes, off course, you can charter a flight from any operative airport.
AVICO will find for you the closest airport from your final destination, while checking the operational feasibility. Operating atypical airports is one of the strong-suit of aircraft chartering for special flights.
Technical constraints related to the airport and the aircraft (such as the runway length, takeoff performance, airport curfew, slots, etc…) are taken into account by our experts in order to guarantee the security of the operation as well as optimal transport experience.
