Traveling while pregnant

Our policy on flying while pregnant depends on both the passenger’s stage of pregnancy and state of health. Particularly for long flights, even passengers in good health should obtain approval from their doctor. We rely on information given to us by the passenger about their stage of pregnancy. For this reason, it is extremely important that our passengers give us correct information about this. Passengers who have not yet entered their 28th week of pregnancy are able to travel without a doctor’s note. Passengers expecting 1 child and who are between the start of the 28th and end of the 35th week of pregnancy are able to travel with a doctor’s note that says there is no particular reason for them not to fly. Likewise, the same note is necessary for passengers expecting more than 1 baby who are between the start of the 28th and the end of the 31st week of pregnancy. Regardless of any doctor’s note, we do not allow passengers onboard who are expecting 1 baby and are entering or are beyond their 36th week of pregnancy or passengers expecting more than 1 baby and entering or beyond their 32nd week of pregnancy. Pregnant passengers who are required to bring a doctor’s note in order to fly must ensure that the note is in either Turkish or English and dated not more than 7 days before the date of travel. The note must be on headed paper belonging to the doctor or a health center. It must contain the doctor’s name, surname, diploma number, and signature along with the date the note was written. The captain reserves the right to refuse the passenger passage or to ask for a new health report on the basis of physical appearance.
