Special Medical Needs

If you, or someone on your booking, are a Customer with special needs, you will require prior approval from us at flynas at the time of your booking. You will also need a valid doctor’s certificate stating the nature of your illness and declaring you ‘fit to fly’ on your specified dates of travel. If you need the presence of a Care Assistant they will also be required to make a booking through the Contact Centre on the same flynas flight at the relevant tariff.
Customers with special needs must book their flight via the flynas Call Centre at least 24 hours in advance of the intended travel date. We will try our best to accommodate such requests, however, flynas reserves the right to decline such Customers should appropriate medical assistance or documentation, as stated above, be unavailable.

Blind - Deaf - Blind & Deaf

Any person with a disability and need of assistance must travel with a companion who is over 18; only passengers who do not need a companion as their safety requirements can be covered by our crew may travel alone.

For Flynas, safety rules are fundamental and, in some cases, it is not possible to cover the needs for assistance that a disabled person may require. It must be taken into account that Flynas does not provide any medical attention on board and, therefore, any passengers with reduced mobility who are not self-sufficient must always be accompanied.

In order to travel without a companion, the person must be capable of:

• Opening their safety belt
• Getting and putting on their life-jacket
• Putting on their oxygen mask without help
• Understanding the safety instructions and following the information given in all accessible formats.

We are aware that a person with a disability may often need fastening, aid or comfort devices. They may be taken and used as long as they fit in the seats and allow the safety belt to be fastened. It must be taken into account that Flynas does not provide these devices.
