Empty Leg Program

If you’re looking for an air ambulance you may be searching for the best price you can find. While you really need the most reliable and highest quality, we understand that sometimes you have to find a good deal.

Air Ambulance 1 has you covered with the highest quality medical flights and some creative ways to keep your costs low! Many times, patients only need a one-way flight but get charged for the entire round trip.  Air Ambulance 1 saw the need to provide a way to correct this imbalance.  With some innovative thinking, we developed the Empty Leg Program.

How Does The Empty Leg Program Work?

Our available air ambulances have to return to their originating airport at the end of a trip. During the return trip, the ambulance is empty.

The Empty Leg Program was developed to save our clients money. We make every effort to match a second patient who will use the same aircraft to return to the same origin or very close to the origin. Using this system helps both customers save up to 50% off of their quoted price.

For example, if we’re sending a jet to pick up an air ambulance patient in a particular town or state, then fly them to a hospital or medical facility near you, our jet will already be in your vicinity and empty.

If you happen to need to be transferred via air ambulance back to the origin city of our jet, you can receive medical air transport with the Air Ambulance 1 program for 50% off the usual cost of services.
