The COVID-19 pandemic has created immense pressure on the healthcare system of the country. Not only for COVID patients but demand for ambulance has increased among non-COVID critical patients too. The shortage of ambulance services in the country has led to autos being converted into ambulances, the launching of floating ambulances and more. To make things easier, air ambulances or medevac services are also coming to play. These ambulances might cost from around ₹75,000 to several lakhs, depending on factors like distance to be covered, level of urgency, nature of the aircraft, patient condition, isolation requirements, etc. Here are some air ambulance services available in India currently:
