Travelling pregnant women

Thursday, May 03, 2007 by balikbayan_box

Dear Sir/ Madam:

My family and i are constant and impulsive travellers. My younger sister
is 6 months pregnant. I would like to know your airline policy for pregnant women who are travelling.

Im looking forward for a quick reply regarding this matter.

Thank you,

From Philippine Airlines

Dear Ms. Garcia,

With regard to your query, an expectant mother may be accepted for travel,
provided that she is not beyond 8 months pregnant. She will be required to
fill up for processing an Expectant Mothers Information Sheet (EMIS) form,
available at any PAL ticket Office. The processed form if valid for 3 days
(for domestic travel) and 7 days (for international travel) from the date
of issue. The passenger must travel within the validity period.

For your information and guidance. Thank you.

From Cathay Pacific:

It is generally safe for pregnant passengers to travel, though caution should be exercised about excessive amounts of flying during the early weeks because of hypoxia. Heavy lifting during pregnancy should be avoided, so extra care should be taken with baggage. Please consult your gynaecologist or obstetrician before planning your trip.

You may visit our web site at the following web page for details
regarding your enquiry:


Kindest regards from The Marco Polo Club.
