In general, Finnair follows the recommendations of the International Air Transport Association regarding air travel and pregnant women.

  • You cannot travel on the majority of Finnair flights if you are in your last month of pregnancy – in other words, you can travel up until your 36th week of pregnancy. However, you can take short Finnair flights to destinations within Finland and Scandinavia until your 38th week of pregnancy, provided that your pregnancy is progressing normally and there are no complications or signs of imminent childbirth.
  • If you are travelling after your 28th week of pregnancy, you must provide us with a doctor's certificate as proof that your pregnancy is progressing normally. You should obtain your certificate at some point during or after the 27th week. You only need to provide us with one certificate, unless there are changes in your pregnancy’s progress.
  • You may take a healthy newborn without restriction on all Finnair routes as long as he or she is at least 2 days old.

Please e-mail doctor's certificates to or fax them to +358 (0)9 818 4825. You must e-mail your certificate to us no later than 24 hours prior to flight departure.
