Fitness To Fly Certificate
FITNESS TO FLY CERTIFICATE
You may be asked for proof of your “fitness to fly” when requesting assistance.
If you have a stable condition, there is generally no need to be cleared for travel.
There are usually two parts to the medical clearance process:
- You’ll be asked to provide information about your situation or condition
- If the airline has concerns about how flying might impact your particular condition, it will ask you to complete a further form.
You may also be asked to provide medical proof at this stage, which is often a doctor’s note.
Am I Fit to Fly?
Check The Civil Aviation Website for information & frequently asked questions about passenger health regarding air travel.
If you need additional advice, then please contact your Doctor or The Airline you are flying with.
Travelling with a Carer
Airlines may decide that for safety reasons, you must travel with a carer.
This is generally the case if a passenger can’t undertake activities such as being able to evacuate independently in the event of an emergency.
Your travelling companion will usually need to buy their own ticket. However, the airline should make all reasonable efforts to ensure that you & your companion can sit next to each other.
Please Note: An airport should never separate you from your carer if you need help understanding instructions, including at the security search area.
