Women who are less than 28 weeks pregnant and are experiencing no complications during their pregnancy are accepted on board without a doctor’s approval. Provided they are more than 28 weeks and less than 36 weeks pregnant, a valid doctor’s approval, not more than 7 days old, is requested. In case it is confirmed that the child birth would not occur within 4 weeks of the start of the journey, there are no medical obstacles for travelling by air. Only in case an expectant mother is travelling because of a surgery or a medical treatment, it is necessary to fill out and enclose special forms and documents usually required from disabled persons.
When not to travel
Expectant mothers whose babies are due to be born within 7 days before the flight or mothers whose babies were born less than 7 days before the flight, cannot be accepted on board.
