Flying when pregnant

You can book your flight as usual up to your 36th week of pregnancy, as long as you haven’t had any complications or medical concerns.

If you’re travelling domestically during or after your 36th week of pregnancy, you will need to bring a medical certificate or letter signed by your doctor or midwife. You may not be accepted on the flight if you travel without one.

The letter needs to include:

  • Confirmation of a single or multiple pregnancy
  • That there are no complications during the pregnancy
  • The estimated date of delivery
  • The latest date your doctor expects you to be fit to travel
  • That you are in good health
  • That there is no known reason that would prevent you from flying

If you are expecting a child when making a booking, please continue to book your flight and when your baby is born, simply call us to add their name to your booking.

International travel is only permitted up to the 36th week for a single pregnancy and 32nd week for a multiple pregnancy. 

Some countries place limitations on the entry of non-national pregnant women. It is best to check with the local consulate if in any doubt.

Pregnant customers permitted to travel must be able to comply with seat belt regulations.

Pregnant customers who require assistance to travel on board our aircraft or at the airport are advised to provide Airnorth with information regarding their requirements prior to travel. This is done through the use of a Disability Access Facilitation Information Form (DAFI) available upon request.
