Virgin Atlantic
  • Travel is permitted without restrictions until the 28th week of pregnancy provided that the pregnancy is free from complications.
  • Virgin Atlantic asks that their Special Assistance department be informed of pregnancy so that they can supply appropriate inflight health advice.
  • Between the 28th and 36th weeks of pregnancy a doctor's or midwife's certificate is required. The certificate must state that the passenger is safe for travel and the expected due date (32 weeks if carrying multiples in an uncomplicated pregnancy).
  • Beyond the 36th week of pregnancy, travel is only permitted for medical/compassionate reasons and the pregnant passenger is required to be accompanied by a medical escort. This travel is subject to the approval of a Virgin Atlantic doctor.
