We recommend that you consult your doctor beforehand.
Guests with casts
• No flights are allowed within 24 hours after a fracture.
• Only flights with a flight time of less than 2 hours are allowed between 24 hours and 48 hours after a fracture.
The cast must be plastered within the first 7 days after a fracture.
We recommend even for fractures that are older than 7 days that the cast is plastered.
Passengers who are traveling with casts on extremities from the hip and upward only need one seat.
Passengers with a leg cast (thigh down to or including the ankle) must purchase
2 seats because the leg must be elevated during the flight and for safety reasons should not be stretched out in the aisle.
For children with leg casts, the number of additional seats to be booked depends on the size of the child.
All passengers with broken limbs set in plaster casts must provide a physician’s certificate confirming that the passenger is allowed to fly. In addition, some airlines require that an indemnity form for sick passengers be signed in order to confirm that the respective passenger has been informed regarding the risks associated with transportation (swelling of limbs due to low air pressure, tissue damage, circulation problems, risk of thrombosis, etc.).
Guests with disablities
If a passenger requires, in addition to its normal wheel chair, a wheelchair for being able to use showers etc., you have to register it beforehand in our Service Centre; the transport is free of charge.
Groups of physically or mentally disabled persons must be registered in our Service Centre.
For space and security reasons, the transport of a wheelchair must be registered and confirmed by our Service Centre. You are only entitled to carriage, if you can present a corresponding confirmation. Wheelchair assistance (from the check-in desk to the machine) is currently provided free of charge for all European flights. Please contact our Service Centre.
We offer free seat reservations to passengers who are dependent on a wheelchair and their accompanying person. Because of official security regulations, these passengers are not permitted to reserve a seat at the emergency exit. The reservation is always made for a seat at the window in especially reserved rows.
Passengers with visual impairment
It is important to inform us already during booking, if this service is needed, and to register a guide dog. Please inform our Service Centre, if you want to use this service.
Animals weighing up to 6 kg can be carried in the cabin. They must be carried in a soft, waterproof pet carrier with dimensions that do not exceed 55 cm x 40 cm x 20 cm. The animal’s head must not protrude from the transport container and the animal must not leave the container during the flight.
Cats and dogs weighing more than 6 kg are carried in the hold. For the transport in the freight hold, you have to provide a safe and sturdy transport container in which the animal has sufficient room to turn around and to stand up. The container may not exceed a maximum height of 83 cm. Only one animal can be carried per transport container. Under no circumstances may the container be placed on a seat.
Stricter EU regulations came into force on 1 July 2004. All animals must be fitted with a microchip and have the new, blue EU animal passport, confirming an up-to-date vaccination against rabies.
TUI fly charges a processing fee of EUR 40.00 (GBP 35.00/USD 57.00) per animal and flight segment on international routes and EUR 47.60 on domestic routes for carriage in the cabin, and EUR 60.00 (GBP 53.00/USD 83.00) on international routes and EUR 71.40 on domestic routes for carriage in the hold. You can register your pet when making the booking online and pay the processing fee directly. If you have already booked your flight, you can register your pet afterwards by calling our Service Centre. Each passenger may bring one pet.
