Pregnancy

PREGNANCY

Most restrictions quoted by airlines on flying whilst pregnant are established to reduce the cost and disruption to the airline of an in-flight diversion in the event of labour developing - not an issue for a flight on Loch Lomond Seaplanes as we could easily disembark you within ten minutes.

For medical information on flying whilst pregnant please read the following document - Air Travel and Pregnancy - Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.

The document above refers to generally to flying in an airliner - with respect to pressure and altitude changes as well as DVT concerns - the seaplane flies for a short period at very low altitudes - normally around 2,000 feet. For example, many roads throughout the UK and Europe are at a similar altitude.
