Turkish Airlines Special Assistance

The airlines has clearly stated rules and principles for the carriage of pregnant women, children and infants and passengers with different kinds of disabilities. If passenger requires special assistance during the course of journey, the same shall be communicated to the airline customer service at the time of booking or some days in advance of the travel date.

Expectant Mothers

Women who are more than 35 weeks pregnant are not allowed to fly. Those between 28 weeks up to 35 weeks of pregnancy are allowed to fly with Fit to Fly certificate from doctor. Women up to end of 27 weeks of pregnancy are allowed to fly without any certificate. This clearance shall be taken 7 days before the flight and should not be later than this date.

However, in case of women expecting multiple pregnancies or having complications, Fit to Fly certificate is required from 28-31 weeks of pregnancy. This report shall be in either English or in Turkish.
