Frequently Asked Questions

Am I fit to fly?

Not sure whether you’re fit to fly? You’ll need to contact your doctor before you book. Flying can cause problems like Deep Vein Thrombosis for people with bronchial or circulatory problems – so it’s best to double-check.

Broken bones
If you’ve broken your arm or leg, you can still travel with TUI as long as your plaster cast hasn’t been fitted or changed less than 48 hours before your flight. If it has been fitted or changed during the 48 hours before, you’ll need a fitness to fly letter from your doctor.

If you have full leg plaster, a fused knee or you can’t bend your leg, you’ll need to book two extra seats so you can sit sideways during the flight. Please give us a call to arrange this. You’ll need a fitness to fly letter, too.

Infectious diseases
If you’ve been suffering from an infectious disease like chickenpox, you’ll need to wait a certain period of time after you’ve recovered before you can travel. Speak to your doctor and to the airline to check how long this is. You’ll also need a fitness to fly letter from your doctor.
