Pregnant women

If you are pregnant, please refer to the following key points before booking:

  • Always consult with your doctor before making a reservation so you know if you’re safe to fly;
  • When you are in the third trimester of pregnancy (at 28 weeks), you need to bring a letter or a certificate from a specialist stating that you are good enough to fly;
  • If you are pregnant with multiple pregnancies, or have problems during pregnancy, you need a medical clearance before you fly;
  • We do not guarantee that it is safe for you and your baby to travel at any time during your pregnancy.

For your safety, it is best to seek advice from your own physician or midwife; they will know if you are safe to fly, especially in the later stages of pregnancy.

Whether or not you can fly a flight depends on the flight length, the stage of pregnancy, whether you are pregnant with one or multiple pregnancies, if you have any problems during pregnancy.

Permitted travel

Flights of less than 4 hours
  • Single pregnancy – up to the end of the 40th week
  • Multiple pregnancy – up to the end of the 36th week
Flights of 4 or more hours:
  • Single pregnancy –up to the end of the 36th week
  • Multiple pregnancy – up to the end of the 32nd week

 

When you enter your third trimester, you are not allowed to sit in the emergency exit row on any Pacific Airlines aircraft. This is a safety way to protect you and your baby, in case you could be in danger if you need to open a severe emergency exit door.

*Note: when you travel on an international flight, some countries will restrict entry to pregnant passengers who are not nationals of that country. You must check with the relevant embassy or consulate before you fly, to see if you are within this limit.
