Hi Flying - Air Ambulance International provides commercial stretcher service for patients that require a stretcher for travel but who do not need emergency transportation through an air ambulance service. Commercial stretcher service allows patients to fly on commercial airlines while still being able to remain on their stretcher throughout their travels.

Stretcher service is not available on all commercial airlines. However, many major airlines provide the option for stretcher service on some of their flights. In order to accommodate a medical stretcher, these airlines retrofit the traditional seating arrangement to allow a stretcher in and to allow for it to be secured during flight.

Airline industry earnings this year are expected to fall 21% short of expectations with global trade tensions and rising costs denting the outlook for collective profits, the industry’s leading trade group said Sunday.

Airlines this year should post $28 billion in collective net profit, down from $35.5 billion forecasts six months ago, said the International Air Transport Association that represents more than 200 airlines from the U.S. to Australia. Carriers last year returned a combined net profit of $30 billion.

More than half the industry’s net profit, IATA said, should be generated by North American carriers. They are expected to return $15 billion in combined profit.

“Margins are being squeezed by rising costs right across the board,” IATA Director General Alexandre de Juniac said at the lobby group’s annual meeting.

The Trump administration this summer plans to impose higher tariffs on numerous goods made in China, denting freight demand. The airline industry is only one of several to feel the sting. Danish shipping giant A.P. Moeller-Maersk AS last month reported a first-quarter loss and warned that rising trade tensions between the U.S. and China could cut container growth by up to a third this year.

Amid signs of growing trade tensions, including a U.S. threat to place tariffs on Mexican goods, IATA’s chief economist, Brian Pearce, said “it could get worse.”

The effect of those trade tensions on airlines is varied, said executives at the IATA meeting. Alan Joyce, chief executive of Australia’s Qantas Airways Ltd. said demand growth has slowed notably on some routes as Chinese fliers prepare for protracted trade tensions. Delta Air Lines Inc. Chief Executive Ed Bastian, though, said: “we are not seeing a significant impact.” Deutsche Lufthansa AG boss Carsten Spohr said airfreight demand has clearly been hurt, but the passenger business remains robust.

Costs also are on the rise. IATA now expects fuel to represent about 25% of average airline costs, up from 23.5% last year. Nonfuel unit costs are expected to rise 39.5%, IATA said. Cost increases of $822 billion across the industry are outpacing $865 billion in higher sales.
"However, we are able to keep the cost of Airline stretcher in the range of USD 20000 - USD 30000 on most sectors inspite of increased airline cost especially for our existing clients.
This has helped in getting more transfers per month thereby keeping the profits in the same slim range that we expect from this mode of travel.
It has been a good year last 2018 and we hope to end the year 2019 on a similar note."
Commented Medical Director - HI Flying- Air Ambulance International.
