Preparing to travel
What is the maximum gestation age allowed for travel?
In both cases, expectant mothers who are 28 or more weeks pregnant must carry a medical declaration stating both the length of gestation and that there are no complications. In this document, the doctor must also certify that the pregnancy does not prevent her from flying.
Prior permission from the TAP doctor is required in the following situations:
- medium- or high risk pregnancy;
- pregnancy with complications;
- no complications, over 36 weeks pregnant;
- over 32 weeks pregnant with twins, triplets;
- doubts as to gestation time and expected date of delivery;
- expected complications during delivery;
- risk of miscarriage or recent miscarriage.
