Flying When Pregnant

With a bit of extra care and preparation, women with complication-free pregnancies may fly onboard Royal Jordanian flights.
  •  Prior to the 28th week of Pregnancy:

All passengers flying when pregnant are advised to consult their doctors/medical practitioners before traveling. 

  • On  the 28th week of Pregnancy and beyond:

or you  can download this form and have your attending Gynecologist to fill it and then forward it to Special Assistance Coordinators at rjsacs@rj.com 

  • Pregnant women with multiple pregnancy (twins or more) after their 32nd week will not be accepted to travel. 
  • All Pregnant women in their 34th week of pregnancy and on forward will not be accepted to travel on board Royal Jordanian flights.

Medical Report Guidelines:

  • State if the pregnancy is single or multiple.
  • State the number of weeks of pregnancy (Gestational age in week).
  • State the Expected Date of Delivery.

Tips to Increase Comfort Onboard

  • Be careful with your luggage as heavy lifting during pregnancy should be avoided.
  • Wear your seatbelt low around the pelvis.
  • Walk around the plane at regular intervals throughout the flight.
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the flight and avoid eating “heavy” foods which can lead to stomach cramps through prolonged immobility.
