| Finnair Canada

If you are pregnant, you can travel on Finnair flights with the following restrictions:

  • Flying is allowed until the end of the 36th week (35 weeks + 6 days) in case of a singleton pregnancy if the flight duration is more than 2 hours.
  • Flying is allowed until the end of the 38th week (37 weeks + 6 days) in case of a singleton pregnancy if the flight duration is 2 hours or less.
  • Flying is allowed until the end of the 32nd week (31 weeks + 6 days) in case of a multiple pregnancy.

If the flight duration is more than 6 hours, you need to provide us with a doctor’s certificate after your 32nd week of pregnancy. Otherwise, we recommend you carry a letter or statement from your attending physician or midwife as proof that your pregnancy is progressing normally.

If the pregnancy is complicated, you need to provide us with a MEDIF form.

A letter or statement from the attending physician or midwife* shall confirm:

  • Whether your pregnancy is singleton or multiple
  • What is your expected due date (EDD)
  • That there are no complications with your pregnancy

The letter should be dated as close to the travel date as possible and cover the entire journey (outbound and return) provided you don’t require any medical care during the trip.

*) In Finland, Denmark, Norway and Sweden, the certificate can also be signed by a midwife.

How to provide a doctor’s certificate? 

If you are travelling after your 32nd week of pregnancy on a long-haul flight (flight duration more than 6 hours), you must fill in the special assistance form and provide us with a doctor's certificate as proof that your pregnancy is progressing normally. In Finland, Denmark, Norway and Sweden, the certificate can also be signed by a midwife.

Please fill in the form and send us the certificate at least 72 hours prior to your flight departure. 

Please note that we cannot accept you onboard without the approval described above.
