Pregnant women

Travelling on planes is safe for pregnant women who have not had previous complications. The majority of airlines do not impose specific authorisations for women travelling within their first 28 weeks of pregnancy.

Airlines do however recommend that women more than 28 weeks pregnant travel with medical authorisation.

Airlines similarly recommend that women more than 36 weeks pregnant do not fly. If you need to travel, you should consult the situation with your doctor and travel with obligatory medical authorisation.

In the majority of cases, you will need to sign airline's Waiver of Responsibility with regard to problems that could potentially arise as a result of your condition..

Contact your airline to check the measures that apply in these cases.
