Medical Information

Travelling while one is suffering from an illness can be disheartening, though in most cases it isn’t necessary to change your travel plans. On some occasions, it may be necessary to take precautions. For this reason, we provide the following information so that you are informed of everything that you should keep in mind.

Medical Authorization and Physical Condition for Flight:
Certain medical conditions require you inform us before flying to assure it is safe to fly. Conditions that require a medical authorization are:

  • Recent illness, hospitalization, injury or surgeries
  • An unstable existing illness
  • The need for oxygen or the use of medical equipment on board
  • Travel for the purpose of medical treatments

We ask you to fill out our INFOMED form with your doctor and please send it to us.

We evaluate your physical condition based on internationally accepted criteria to assure that you can fly safely and comfortably. In certain cases, it’s possible that we request additional information or we ask that you fly accompanied by a doctor or with oxygen. At One Airways we can provide you with the company of a trained doctor.

We strongly recommend you review the World Health Organization’s program regarding International Travel and Health.
