Yes there is. A baby must be at least 8 days old before we can accept him/her on to one of our flights, due to the physical effects of flying at high-altitude. Therefore, please note that we would always advise the newborn's parents or guardians to ensure that the treating doctor agrees to him/her travelling by air.
Similarly, the baby's mother can be accepted for travel from 48 hours after the birth of her baby subject to having delivered without any complications or surgery. If a caesarean section was performed or if surgery was needed for the mother then the minimum period before we could accept her for travel would be 10 days. However, this is also subject to approval for travel from her treating doctor.
