Confirmed Cases of Wuhan Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)
Based on our current PMIU capability FAI will offer transportation of patients with confirmed “2019-nCoV“ infection on a case by case basis. All such flights will be operated in an EpiShuttle PMIU unit with dedicated trained medical teams and equipment.
Case Contacts with negative 2019-nCoV serology
Based on our current PMIU capability FAI will offer transportation of patients who are positive case contacts as defined, with negative “2019-nCoV“ serology test results, on a case by case basis. All such flights will be operated in an EpiShuttle PMIU unit with dedicated trained medical teams and equipment.
Patients with conditions unrelated to Wuhan Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)
Air ambulance transports for patients with unrelated diagnoses, from locations where the outbreak is established, will similarly be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
