> Travelling with a lung disease
Any lung disease can be a very serious diagnosis in association with flight, and its significance must not be underestimated.
Despite the fact that aircraft have pressurised cabins, the oxygen pressure in the passengers’ lungs is greatly reduced during flight, which is why passengers with COPD, in particular, may need extra oxygen during the flight. This can occur even if you have never previously needed supplementary oxygen.
Before your travel
If you have a lung disease – regardless of the stage – you must have authorisation from Jet Time to fly with us. Contact Jet Time's Passenger Service, so we can assist in evaluating the information we need in your specific case to be able to approve your trip.
In most cases, we will ask you to submit a Medical Information Form (MEDIF) completed, signed and stamped by your doctor or pulmonary specialist.
You will normally receive an acceptance from us – or information about any conditions – soon after we have received the completed MEDIF form. If your own doctor/GP deems that you may need oxygen on board, you have to bring it yourself for both out- and homebound flights.
