Hypodermic needles are authorized in the cabin with a prescription. You are entirely responsible for their use. Please do not leave them in the aircraft: a special waste receptacle is available with our onboard staff.
However, we advise you to treat any ear, nose or throat infections prior to departure. In order to avoid any chance of decompression sickness, we also advise against travel by aircraft less than 24 hours after scuba diving.
- each aircraft is equipped with a first-aid kit and a semi-automatic defibrillator,
- in case of a serious problem, the cabin crew seeks the assistance of a doctor on board, or contacts the medical team on the ground for instructions and, if necessary, to organize treatment of the patient upon landing.
