A medical repatriation flight can be quit involved depending on the patients condition. Simple things like interior air pressure can be problematic. Most modern jets fly at or about 30,000’ which gives an equivalent internal air pressure of 7-8,000’. This can be problematic for patients with respiratory or cardiac problems. To fly with an internal air pressure of ground zero means the aircraft has to fly at a much lower altitude which means significantly increased fuel consumption and air traffic problems because such flights cannot fly in the International Flight Corridors, also significantly longer flight times. It can become quit involved depending on the patient/medical condition.In Trier three years ago I met a couple both of whose jobs were pilots for repatriation of Germans in need of urgent medical care. If they charge £100,000 per flight, no wonder they were happy to share their beers with us!
