Fit to Fly Certificates

Fitness to Fly Certificates

There is no statutory requirement for GPs to complete Fit to Fly statements requested by airline companies.  These certificates can quickly become medically outdated. Due to this, our GPs feel these certicates would not give a accurate representation of your current medical condition on the day of flying.  This means we do not routinely complete these statements for our Patients.

Instead we can provide a brief summary of your medical records, which shows your current conditions and date of diagnosis. Alternatively you can view your medical records from the 1st April 2022 via the NHS app.

The Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists have provided an information leaflet, via the following link, for pregnant patients thinking of flying.
