  2. What is a MEDIF?

    If the Patient is fit enough to travel on a schedulled flight with medical escort, the airlines may require some information about the Patient and their medical condition.
    MEDIF is an acronym for Medical Information Form. It is a special Medical Fitness to Fly Form issued by the airlines that the treating doctor has to fill in and sign. In MEDIF, information about Patient's doctor, medical condition, diagnosis, prognosis for the trip is required.

  3. Can I travel on a commercial flight with doctor, nurse and/or paramedic?

    Not all Patients can travel on a commercial flight with medical escort.


    At Mediaviation we specialise in worldwide medical repatriation. We will assess Patient's medical condition based on medical notes and then advise if this way of repatriation is appropriate. If the commercial flight with doctor, nurse and/or paramedic cannot be performed due to the medical condition of the Patient, we will advise when and how Patients can be brought home safely.
