Thanks for your query.
Expectant mothers in good health are accepted for air travel up to and including 32 weeks of
pregnancy by major airlines. However, policy of each airline varies, so you will have to check individually.
For travel beyond the 32nd week of pregnancy, you require a formal medical certificate by your treating obstetrician who will certify that you are not at risk of preterm labour or do not have any other complications.
Most airlines will not allow air travel after the 35th week.
Expectant mothers with the past history suggestive of premature labour, bad obstetric history or twin/ multiple pregnancy are generally not allowed to travel beyond 32 weeks.
Please plan accordingly.
