Can you fly if you are pregnant?

If you are pregnant, we will inform you on this page regarding your fitness for air travel and what else you need to consider


Carefree flying during pregnancy

For women with an uncomplicated pregnancy, flying is unproblematic. Nevertheless, we recommend that pregnant women talk to their gynecologist in advance about their upcoming air travel.



Until when can you fly if you are pregnant?

Up to the end of the 36th week of pregnancy, or up to four weeks before the expected date of birth, expectant mothers with an uncomplicated pregnancy can fly with Lufthansa without a gynecological certificate. However, from the 28th week of pregnancy, it is recommended to carry a current certificate stating the following:

- Confirmation that the pregnancy is uncomplicated
- The expected date of birth
- The gynecologist should specifically mention that the pregnancy does not prevent the patient from air travel
- In uncomplicated twin or multiple pregnancies, flying is possible until the end of the 32nd week of pregnancy
- Due to the increased risk of thrombosis during pregnancy, we recommend wearing support stockings on the plane
