Polat stated that after contacting Turkey to demand for an air ambulance, they also had to arrange a local airways light to Djibouti. He stated that after a tough journey to Djibouti, he was taken aboard and he shared his points of view with AA.

He noted, "When I was travelling with the air ambulance I felt if I was in a hospital. All the important and required equipment was there."
