Can patient with a hemorrhagic stroke travel by air

Hello,
My 68 year old father suffered a right thalamus hemorrhagic stroke during an international  flight from Canada to China. He was  sent to a hospiltal in South Korea which is about 1.5 hrs-flight from my hometown. Since his admission, he made some progress on his muscle strength, but his mental status waxes and wanes, and he has left hemiplagia, dysarthria and dysphagia. His blood pressure was controlled with multuple BP meds per tube. We need to transfer him back to China. I have been searching for information about the effects of air travel on hemorrhagic stroke.
Does anyone know what is the air travel recommendation for hemorrhagic stroke patient? How long after onset can they take airplane? What is the theories behind concerning about rebleeding while travel by air. The other choice is by ferry which take about 20 hours to reach my hometown..
