MedCenter Air provides a cost-effective commercial airline service for patients who require medical assistance during their travels. Our service includes a designated coordinator who takes care of logistical planning and assists patients and their families with qualified medical personnel during their journey.

Our service is designed for medically stable patients who do not need continuous medical care but require some assistance.
