Thank you for posting your query.

Sinus bradycardia of mild degrees does not cause any problem while flying.

If your heart rate is above 50 beats per minute, you need not worry and you can fly.

You need to consult your cardiologist urgently if your heart rate is anything below 50 beats per minute.

It is not advisable to fly in such circumstances.

Hope this answers your query effectively.

Please feel free to write back if you have additional concerns.

Wishing you good health.
