What is air ambulance and commercial air stretcher?
Air ambulance is an airplane or helicopter that is equipped to give a critical, emergency or pre hospital care to all types of patients while transporting them to the hospital.
The commercial stretcher – All hope is not lost if a client cannot afford an air ambulance, our aviation doctors would offer you privacy and premium medical care aboard a commercial flight at a very affordable price

Tarmac Clearance is gotten by Flygrandest
Tarmac in this context is an airport runway and a clearance is needed to get the ground ambulance close to the air ambulance. This also allows the immigration officials come to the aircraft to clear all the passengers including the patient. Please note that besides the request as shown below, an amount is to be paid into the government account, The Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria would give account details to pay the money into.
The tarmac request must state the plate number of ground ambulance, name of driver and those accompanying the patient. Their international passport copies would be expected to accompany the application.
Factors that determine cost of air ambulance
The clinical condition of the patient
The patient’s location and the distance they need to travel
The type of aircraft required (Smaller aircraft/Larger aircraft)
The number of medical staff and the specialist required
The Medical equipment needed for the patient
Type of patient – Adult, Pediatric or Neonate
The journey required by ground ambulance
The larger jets will cost more than the smaller aircraft.
However, the larger jets would fly with lesser fuel stops compared to a smaller aircraft.For example, an Air Ambulance flight from Abuja or Lagos to the United States will fly with four to five fuel stops with a small jet, but the same distance can be done in two to one fuel stops with a larger aircraft.
