Lufthansa Patient Transport Compartment (PTC)

Lufthansa German Airline's PTC is an innovative concept to transfer intensive care patients, that usually would have to be transported by an Ambulance Jet, on long-haul flights.

The PTC consists of a separate compartment that is installed on passenger aircraft (Boeing 747, Airbus A340 and A380) containing a fully equipped Mobile Intensive Care Unit, including Ventilators, Monitoring, Resuscitation Equipment and so forth.

In cooperation with Lufthansa we take care of all the necessary steps to provide a smooth operation including medical clearance, booking, providing the appropriate Physician and Assistant, and also the corresponding transfers by Ground- and Air Ambulance.

On ultra-long-haul routes the PTC - sometimes in conjunction with an Air Ambulance Jet - often comprises the best solution with regard to cost efficiency and patient's safety and comfort.
