Lufthansa PTC

We also set standards in transporting patients: The Lufthansa Patient Transportation Compartment (PTC) combines state-of-the-art technology, skilled specialists and efficient processes with the comfort and safety of a hospital intensive care unit - and that at an altitude of 32,000 feet.

The world's unique intensive care unit on intercontinental flights

There are many good reasons to choose the PTC:

  • Plenty of space to enable the best medical care
  • Service support with the formalities and coordination of the transportation
  • Up to 50 percent time-saving through using the PTC on scheduled flights
  • Availability of the PTC is checked within 30 minutes
  • Checking of the patient's fitness for transport before the full PTC costs are incurred
  • Much lower costs than by customary air ambulances
