Max period of pregancy wherein you can travel on Indigo is 36 weeks. After this, you are not allowed. 

Now, for pregnancy from 32 to 36 weeks, you do need a certificate of fit to fly if you have to fly.

Fit to fly certificate is required for travel from 32 weeks onwards, provided there is no complication or multiple pregnancy. You can carry a pregnancy progress report which is normally prepared by the docs since the airline staff might need to verify the progress in pregnancy.

Im an International flyer from US to TVM but I have a 3 day stop over at Mumbai. Since Iv booked the tickets seperatley, the baggage allowance is different in International & Domestic. What would be the best possible rates for extra baggage (20kg) from Mumbai to TVM? And also, i cannot carry anything above 2kg weight due to medical conditions on both my hands. So is there a possibility to check in the hand luggage too without additional cost.

Admin Reply :

Rates for 20 kg excess baggage would be about Rs 4600 for Indigo, Rs 3500 for Goair and Rs 4400 for Spicejet. There are pre-booking+per kg rates. You will have to pay for taking cabin baggage into check-in and increasing the weight above limits.

Which airline are you going to travel with? We have received your enquiry both for IndiGo as well as Spicejet. For IndiGo, only upto 32 weeks pregnant women are allowed to fly. Fit to Fly certifciate will be required.

What all details are required to be mentioned in fit to fly certificate for pregnant passenger???

Admin Reply :

Among other things, it shall state progress of pregnancy, whether there is any  complication or a case of multiple pregnancies. It shall also certify that you are fit to fly in this condition during the period of your travel from all aspects. Proformas are there with the gynaecologists and medical practitioners for Fit-to-Fly Certificate.

IndiGo staff will surely take care of the unaccompanied minor. This is a paid service and IndiGo charges Rs 1500 for it. There will be some documentation required to be done at the airport IndiGo checkin. Parent/Guardian will be required to present at airport till the take-off of airplane. Airline staff will accompany child all through to the cabin and care will also be taken while inside the cabin. At arrival airport, he will be handed over to the person whom you will mention. Contact and identity details of that person would also be required to be given by you.

My wife is in her 28th month of preganncy . Can she travel alone and would there be any assistance provided on the airport for luggage. What is the limit on carrying luggage.

Admin Reply :

Airlines does not object to air travel it if her treating doctor provides a Fit to Fly certificate. For domestic travel, 15 kg check in luggage and 7 kg cabin luggage would be allowed free of cost. If she needs any special assistance at departure or arrival airport, please speak to the customer service representative of the airline at the airport.

Yes, Fit to Fly would not be needed. However, you would need to carry pregnancy progress report which will tell the duration of pregnancy.

It would be good if Fit To Fly certificate carried. Please ask the doctor whether she has crossed the 32 week pregnancy period. If yes, she will not be allowed to fly. If no, she will be allowed to fly with Fit to Fly certificate.

Hello, my wife vil b traveling on 8th July from Hyderabad to Pune. She vil b in her 27th week of pregnancy by the time. So I would like to know if it is required to produce fit to fly certificate while traveling even if doctor has permitted her for air travel.

Admin Reply :

Since pregnancy would be in 27th week and would not have gone into the 28th week, the rules do not make it mandatory to produce Fit To Fly Certificate. But, you are required to show a certificate wherein advancement of pregnancy is recorded or is stated by the doctor. Mere verbal permission would not work.

hi, I would be traveling by indigo eve flight Mumbai to kochi on 3rd, wanted to confirm if I can get someone to assist me with my luggage along with charges. Need assistance as I recently underwent a surgery

Admin Reply :

IndiGo has a policy wherein passengers in need of special assistance are required to inform it of the same at least 72 hours before scheduled departure of flight so that proper arrangement can be done for the same. You will have to contact their customer service if you are in need of special assistance.

Dear sir...I will travel from kochi to kolkata on 20 jun 2015 with my 29 weeks pregnant wife..I got a form i.e, "Application for carriage of medical passenger" in your site...os it the fit to fly certificate which i need to produce while travelling.....? Or some other form is there....please confirm me....

Admin Reply :

This form is actually a MEDA form and not a Fit to Fly Certificate. This has been clarified by airline representative itself. So, the Fit to Fly certificate can be obtained from the treating doctor who do have the proforma of these forms. You will need to produce the Fit to Fly certificate at check in.

Admin Reply :

Yes, you are required to produce Fit To Fly certificate even though you are expecting a normal delivery, without any complicatioins, since you are in the 28th week of pregnancy. It can be obtained from your treating doctor.

She is eligible to travel uptill the end of 32 weeks of pregnancy. She will be required to produce a Fit to Fly certificate from her treating doctor and this is commonly available with the doctors. This certificate shall not be more than 3 days older from the date of travel. So in your case, it shall not be older than 2nd June 2015.

Admin Reply :

Yes, you can get special assistance for your child. You will have to carry the child to airport and ask for airport assitant staff of Spicejet. The accompanying person is required to stay at the airport till the time the child is handed over to the cabin crew. There is a need to fill certain forms which will specify the person to whom the child is to be handed over at the destination airport.
