Frequently asked questions

Up to what stage can pregnant women travel?


Women whose pregnancy is progressing without complications may travel up to and including the 36th week of pregnancy without exposing themselves to any increased health risks. Please note that when requested you must be able to provide a medical certificate (mother pass) indicating the stage of pregnancy you have reached. After the 36th week of pregnancy and up until the birth expectant mothers are in principle no longer suited to flying.

In general they should not fly while pregnant if:
• they are expecting multiple children or
• have already suffered a miscarriage or
• suffer from heart or circulatory illnesses

Throughout pregnancy there is also an increased risk of thrombosis.

To be on the safe side, before flying you should consult your regular doctor to eliminate any possible risks.
