Korean Air: Travel Accomodation for Pregnant Women


I have always assumed that I can only travel until my 32 weeks of pregnancy. Beyond 32 weeks, I will be rejected by the airline. I guess, I assumed this because of my experience when I travelled with Philippine Airlines during my first pregnancy. I finally verified it with the Korean Air website and got this good news:

Travel allowance during Pregnancy:

Pregnant passengers are allowed to travel when a passenger is medically stable for flight. For details of travel allowance, please refer to the chart below:

 
Weeks of Pregnancy (As on the departure date) Travel Allowance
Less than 32 weeks   Pregnant passengers are allowed to travel as regular   passengers
Within 32 ~36 weeks
  Upon reservation, inform the Korean Air staff ‘the number of weeks of pregnancy and the anticipated delivery date
  Submit a medical certificate within 72 hours prior to departure
More than 37 weeks    Doctors recommend that pregnant women avoid    traveling by plane after 37 weeks of pregnancy.
 

 

Documentation for pregnant passengers more than 32 weeks should be prepared as below:

 
Documentation Required Number of Copy Remarks
Medical certificate 1 copy
  Must be signed by an obstetrician and dated within 72 hours prior to departure
  The certificate must state
  The passenger is medically stable for flight
  Number of weeks of pregnancy (from the flight date)
  Number of previous childbirth
  Estimated delivery date
Declaration Form 2 copies
  Complete on the departure date at the check-in counter
 
 

 

At least now we are not pressured to go back to the Philippines the soonest that we can. Important things could still be attended to.
