Pregnant Passengers and New Mothers

Pregnant women

If you are 28 weeks (or more) pregnant, you must have a fit to fly letter from your midwife or doctor. This letter should be dated no more than two weeks before your booked flight and shown to staff at either the bag-drop desk or the boarding gate. If you do not have this letter, we can refuse to carry you.


You cannot travel after the 36th week of your pregnancy, or the 32nd week if you are having twins, triplets or so on.


New mothers

You can fly from 48 hours after giving birth, as long as there were no complications or surgery. If you had a Caesarean section, or you needed surgery, you cannot fly for at least 10 days and will need a fit to fly letter from you doctor.
