Flying While Pregnant

Pregnant women can fly up to and including 27 weeks of pregnancy without needing a medical certificate. From 36 weeks onwards (32 if it's a multiple pregnancy with no complications), pregnant women will not be able to fly for safety reasons and because of the health of the mother and the baby.

If you're between weeks 28 and 35 (inclusive), you must bring the original medical authorisation confirming that you are able to fly. This authorisation must also include its period of validity (start and end date) and the doctor's medical board number and signature.
