Medical certificate

For your own safety and health, you may sometimes require a medical certificate issued from your doctor in order to fly. This medical certificate states that you are healthy enough to travel in a pressurised cabin and/or that you are travelling with medical luggage.

When do I require a medical certificate?

  • You need extra oxygen on board during the flight. The medical statement will include the number of litres of oxygen needed per minute.
  • You are taking medical luggage with you. The maximum weight limit is 15 kg.
  • You are pregnant and there have been complications during your pregnancy.
  • You or your child has a contagious illness (such as chicken pox). The statement must state that the illness is no longer in the contagious phase.
  • You are undergoing a medical procedure within 8 days of departure.
  • You have a plaster cast. You can also fly with us without a medical statement. You are aware of the risks of flying with a cast.
  • You are unable to sit in a normal upright position in the airplane seat during take-off and landing.

Note: Do you have an ear infection or fever? Also ask your doctor for a statement in this case. After all, travelling in a pressurised cabin can aggravate some symptoms. If in doubt, always consult your doctor.
