An airline medical excuse letter, also known as a medical certificate or fit-to-fly letter, is a document issued by a healthcare professional to certify an individual's medical fitness for air travel. This letter is typically required when a passenger has a medical condition or recent illness that might impact their ability to travel by air safely or might require special accommodations during the flight. 

The airline medical excuse letter serves as evidence that the passenger's health condition is stable enough to undertake the flight without posing a risk to themselves or others on board. This letter is often requested by airlines, especially when a passenger has had recent surgery, injury, illness, or has a medical condition that requires medical equipment or special attention during the flight.

  • Patient Information: Full name, date of birth, and passport/ID number. 
  • Medical Condition: Description of the medical condition, including any recent surgery or illness. 
  • Stability: Assurance that the patient's medical condition is stable and doesn't pose a risk during the flight. 
  • Medications: List of medications the patient is taking, if applicable.

  • Duration: Validity period of the medical certificate, if required.

The requirements for an airline medical excuse letter can vary depending on the airline's policies, the nature of the medical condition, and the specific flight details.
