Patient Transport Compartment

Lufthansa offers a mobile ICU on their long distance carriers Airbus A340-300 and Boeing B747-400 fleet.

This new version of the so-called PTC or Patient Transport Compartment, makes the intensive care required by extremely ill patients possible on nearly all of Lufthansa’s long distance flights to a multitude of destinations.

Due to their long range these carriers avoid cost effective and sometimes health-impairing or time-consuming stopovers compared to air ambulance flights.

We are amongst the pioneers to offer these services in co-operation with Lufthansa.
