Common Medical Conditions

Chicken Pox
For the safety of all our customers, at least 7 days must have elapsed since the first spots appeared, with no others forming, before we are able to consider carrying anyone with chicken pox. We also need a Fit to Fly certificate from your doctor to confirm this.

Plaster Casts
We strongly recommend that before travelling you contact your insurance company in the first instance.

If your plaster cast has been fitted for more than 48 hours at the time of travel and there are no complications, then there are no restrictions on travel. Your plaster cast should be loosely fitted to allow for expansion and swelling at high altitudes.

If the plaster cast has been fitted within 48 hours of your flight, you will need a Fit to Fly certificate, signed and dated by a medical professional. You may then travel with a split cast providing you can exit the aircraft unaided, or have a companion to assist you, or have been pre-approved by our Special Assistance Team.

If the break has needed surgery or there have been additional complications, you will need a Medical Information Form from our Special Assistance Team.

In all cases, you need to be able to bend your knee so you can sit in the aircraft seat.
