Can Patients Travel on a Flight?
If you’re sick or injured and need to travel a long distance to go to a hospital, air travel is likely the most convenient way for you to get there. But you might be concerned that you won’t be allowed on a flight due to your current medical situation and may be wondering, can patients travel on a flight? Well, that depends on a number of factors, such as how sick or injured you are, if you’re contagious, and if you will be comfortable in such a confined space. If you have a fever over 100 degrees Fahrenheit or have a contagious disease, it’s best not to travel on a commercial flight. Even if you try, the captain of the plan can prevent you from boarding if he determines it is not safe for the other passengers. Also, if you are injured, depending on the severity, it may not be a good idea for you to fly. That’s because with such tight quarters, your mobility will be limited and you may find yourself in a very uncomfortable position.
