Travelling when Pregnant

Can I fly if I'm pregnant?

Thomson Airways flights
For uncomplicated, single pregnancies, you can be a maximum of 36 weeks pregnant on your return flight if you're going short haul. If you're flying long haul, it's 34 weeks. For multiple pregnancies, you can only fly up to 32 weeks.

Over 28 weeks pregnant?
Just so you know, you'll need to provide a note from a doctor or midwife if you'll be over 28 weeks pregnant when you fly. It must include your estimated date of confinement, confirmation that your pregnancy is uncomplicated and that you're fit to fly.

You'll also need to make sure your insurance covers you for the whole trip as many policies only cover you until you're 28 weeks pregnant.

Other airlines
You'll need to check with the airline you're flying with if you're not travelling with Thomson Airways. Each airline has different rules for flying while pregnant.


 

I wish to book a family holiday in advance, even though my baby has not yet been born. How do I book without knowing my baby's date of birth?

If you wish to book a holiday before your baby is born please contact our Thomson Call Centre on 0871 231 4691 (Calls cost 10p per minute plus network extras). This holiday cannot be booked online, as our website requires the date of birth of each passenger before the booking can be completed. Alternatively, you may wish to visit your local Thomson shop to book your holiday. Find your nearest Thomson shop.
