While a lot of progress has been made over the last few years in intra-city emergency and ambulance services in India, turn-around time for patients travelling from other cities also needs to be very quick and efficient with the only effective mode of transport then being through air. Commercial airlines cannot meet this requirement, as this requires specialised aircraft with Advance Life Support (ALS) systems including a flight stretcher, specialised medical equipment, a full assortment of patient specific drugs and medications along with a medical team to meet the specific needs of the patient.
Emergency Medical Retrieval Service (EMRS) JetSetGo has started providing air ambulance transfers domestically and internationally. JetSetGo stringently selects partner across the value chain to work with and through alliances makes available aircraft or helicopters at strategic locations with immediate access to medical teams.
JetSetGo hopes to make use of the available airport and aviation eco-system partners to provide better air ambulance services at more affordable costs in the country. The cost of utilising an air ambulance starts at Rs 70,000.
