Air Ambulance

Since 2006, Pacific Western Emergency Services has provided safe, reliable and cost effective private air ambulance services across Western Canada and throughout the world.


We have overseen thousands of international medical repatriation missions for ill and injured Canadian’s who are returning home to Canada on a medical flight. The team at Pacific Western Emergency Services uses dedicated, private air ambulance medical flights staffed with Paramedics and Registered Nurses who tend to all aspects of the patient’s care. Since 2006 we have been providing air ambulance services in Western Canada to a variety of clients. Visit our Projects and Experience page to learn more.



Pacific Western Emergency Services has air ambulance bases located in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Calgary, Alberta.

From here, we dispatch our medical aircraft to rescue Canadian travelers, or for less urgent circumstances, those who require a medical repatriation on commercial airline flights. Our medical teams can be dispatched around the world at anytime in response to our clients needs. Whether you are looking for an international medical repatriation to or from Canada, a private air ambulance to evacuate you from California back to Canada, or an emergency evacuation by air ambulance from Mexico, Pacific Western Emergency Services has you covered. With our British Columbia Air Ambulance and our Alberta Air Ambulance we are strategically positioned to dispatch the right aircraft and medical flight team to meet your needs when a mission arises.


Pacific Western Emergency Services is more than just a private air ambulance service or emergency air transport service. We provide full cycle emergency medical assistance and case management to our clients, something no other air ambulance company does. We use our decades of experience in medical case management to assist patients and families in need, during their time of crisis.

If you need an air ambulance because you are without travel medical insurance coverage, or your travel insurance claim has been denied, Pacific Western Emergency Services will step in to fill this coverage gap and provide you with critical, cost saving emergency medical assistance. When travel medical insurance cannot help, or will not help – we will be there, to offer the same level of expertise and support.

This includes locating a hospital bed in Canada, making sure proper arrangements for the medical repatriation flight or private medical jet are in place, evaluating the condition of the patient before the medical transport occurs, making recommendations for air ambulance transport, identifying cost savings opportunities, and finally, negotiating with the hospital to ensure that your medical costs are contained. Medical cost containment is a key aspect of the services provided by Pacific Western Emergency Services. This service can significantly reduce hospital bills encountered during an international medical emergency.

Most air ambulance companies simply are only interested in providing you with a cost for the emergency air transport. In fact, to make their price look attractive, they might not even include the cost of the ground ambulances in the air ambulance quote. They have no interest in, or ability to provide emergency travel assistance or case management. Pacific Western Emergency Services is a full cycle emergency assistance company that bridges this gap, by providing critical support before, during and after the medical flight or repatriation.

Some of the places we have helped Canadian travelers return from with our private air ambulance and medical repatriation flights include common snowbird destinations such as Palm Springs, Phoenix, Mexico, Thailand and Hawaii, just to name a few. Our reach and capabilities are global.
