It can take up to 5 working days for this request to be completed. 

EXPECTANT MOTHER – MEDICAL CONFIRMATION – FITNESS TO FLY

Airlines differ slighty but the majority follow the rules below.

Once an uncomplicated pregnancy enters its 28th week, expectant mothers are required to carry a 'fit to fly' letter completed by their midwife/doctor above. This completed letter should be dated within 2 weeks of the booked flight.

Airlines reserve the right to refuse travel of an expectant mother over 28 weeks pregnant who does not present a completed “fit to fly" letter from their midwife/doctor at either the bag drop desk and/or the boarding gate.

For uncomplicated pregnancies travel is not permitted beyond the following dates:

  • For an uncomplicated single pregnancy, travel is not permitted beyond the end of the 36th week of pregnancy
  • For an uncomplicated twins, triplets etc. pregnancy, travel is not permitted beyond the end of the 32nd week of pregnancy.
