Etihad offers fit to fly check


ABU DHABI, UAE, 11 July 2018: Etihad Airways has launched two specialised services for air travellers who have pre-existing medical conditions.

Members of the Etihad medical team, qualified in aviation and transport medicine, will provide the service on request.

The first service allows guests, who require medical clearance prior to travel, the opportunity to request an Etihad aviation doctor to visit them to conduct an evaluation in consultation with their attending physician.

An Etihad doctor fills out all medical forms and conducts an assessment, leading to a recommendation about the passenger’s “fit to fly” status within a single day.

The second service offers an in-flight nurse, who can accompany guests during their trip and provide medical support.

Both services have been designed to provide a hassle-free journey by removing unnecessary anxiety.
