Thanks for the query.
Yes, you can travel by air.
The cervical stitch actually will have protective effect during the traveling.
So no need to worry.
You take all your required medicines prescribed by your doctor.
And after reaching your country continue regular antenatal checkups.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
