Medical clearance

In most cases, medical clearance is not required for travel with Air France.
While medical clearance is not always necessary, Air France recommends contacting your primary care physician to determine whether you are fit for air travel in the following cases:
  • Pregnancy
  • Recent surgery
  • An appendage in a cast

Medical clearance delivered by Air France´s Medical Service is mandatory only in the following cases:
  • You are traveling with a stretcher or incubator,
  • You need oxygen therapy at a rate exceeding 2 liters/minute,
  • You may need extraordinary medical assistance during the flight due to your state of health*,
  • You have a contagious disease*

* In these cases, recent medical clearance from your physician or a certificate from the airport physician is accepted.

If one of the following cases concerns you, please consult your primary care physician before traveling. To obtain
an Air France Medical Service clearance, please download forms A and B:

  • Form B "Passengers requiring medical clearance" to be completed by your primary care physician.
  • You must submit both completed forms to Air France no later than 48 hours before your departure.

    They must also be sent to an Air France physician whose contact details will be sent to you by our SAPHIR service, your booking agent or your travel agency.

    Air France Medical Service determines if you are fit to travel (or not), and if so, issues your medical clearance.

    Please note: any supplied medical information is read by Air France physicians only and remains confidential.

    In addition, we recommend obtaining a medical certificate if you are transporting full or empty syringes for use on board. This will facilitate your passage at airport security checks.
