Questions about special needs

A medical certificate is not required to travel with a leg or arm plaster cast. However, please bear in mind the 48-hour period from the fitting of the cast and, also, the flight duration time.

FOR FLIGHTS UNDER 2 HOURS:

If the cast was fitted within the last 48 hours, it should be opened lengthwise down the middle. This cut can be made at the hospital or by the airport medical service. No medical certificate is required. However, the passenger must sign a disclaimer, which can be obtained at the check-in desks (except for flights to the USA), indicating the date that the cast was fitted.

If the passenger flies after the first 48 hours from the fitting of the plaster cast, it is NOT necessary to sign the disclaimer or provide a medical certificate.

FOR FLIGHTS OVER 2 HOURS:

Within the first 48 hours of the fitting of the cast, the passenger is required to have the plaster cast opened up halfway by means of a longitudinal cut. This can be done at the hospital or by the airport medical service. No medical certificate is required. However, the passenger must sign a disclaimer, which can be obtained at the check-in desks (except for flights to the USA), indicating the date that the cast was fitted.

If the passenger flies after the first 48 hours from the fitting of the plaster cast, it is NOT necessary to sign the disclaimer or provide a medical certificate.

Any passengers with a plaster cast that reaches their waist or covers the entire leg must purchase the required number of seats to keep their leg elevated throughout the flight.
