If you are a person with disabilities and need additional assistance when boarding/disembarking from the plane, climbing/descending the ladder or moving in the cabin, please e-mail us to [email protected] 48 hours before the departure so that we can prepare and make your flight as comfortable as possible.
We ask all our passengers with special needs to provide a doctor's statement confirming the possibility of air travel.
If you are traveling with your own wheelchair, please note the requirements for its transportation:
If you need an oxygen apparatus while traveling, please notify us at least 48 hours before your scheduled departure to agree the possibility of transporting it on board our aircraft. We will ask you to provide the following documents:
For your comfort and safety, please take care of a sufficient number of batteries — they should be enough for the duration of the flight, transfers, as well as unexpected delays.
You can carry personal cylinders with gaseous oxygen or air (exclusively for medical purposes) in your carry-on baggage or in the baggage compartment in an amount sufficient for the flight, weighing up to 5 kg gross each, by prior agreement with the airline. If there are any cylinders, valves and regulators, please make sure that they are protected from damage to prevent spontaneous leakage of contents. Liquid oxygen cylinders are prohibited for carriage by air.
The use of the oxygen kit during takeoff and landing is prohibited.
Traveling is always a bright emotion. Twice as bright when you are expecting a miracle. We will do everything, for our part, to ensure that your flight goes smoothly and safely, but it is important to remember that the body of a pregnant woman reacts more sensitively to overload, stress, pressure and climate changes.
We care about you, therefore, before booking a ticket, please consult with your doctor about the possibility of a safe flight. If you are more than 28 weeks pregnant, we will ask you to provide a doctor's statement with information about your pregnancy and whether it is single or multiple.
We also draw your attention to the fact that the medical certificate must contain the phrase: "Fit to fly by air carriage".
The medical certificate must be dated at most 5 days before the date of the first departure on the route.
The certificate must be on the letterhead of a medical institution or doctor`s with the full name of the doctor and his signature.
If you are traveling abroad, the certificate must be in English.
At check-in we will give you and ask you to fill the Expectant Mother Form before your flight.
Please remember that in the rules of different countries there are clear periods of pregnancy when you can fly without restrictions, the periods when you can fly only with the permission of the doctor, and the periods when flying is prohibited.
The rules of our airline allow women to travel on board the aircraft, if the pregnancy does not exceed 35 weeks, and 32 weeks in case of the multiple pregnancy.
The first flight of a baby is a small celebration for us. We will give all our attention and care to both the baby and the mother so that you feel calm. Your safety is our top priority, so we ask you to wait at least 7 days after birth before flying, as it is not recommended to transport women shortly after labour and newborns in the first 7 days after birth.
One adult passenger can fly with two infants under the following conditions:
If you do not have such a baby car seat, SkyUp has the right to refuse to carry the infant in a separate seat.
For the comfort of our little passengers and the convenience of their parents, there are changing tables onboard our planes.
In order to comply with the safety requirements established by international law and the legislation of Ukraine, we may refuse a person with a disability or limited mobility to confirm a booking, board an aircraft, or require that such person be accompanied by another person who is able to provide him/her with the necessary assistance.
We will also be forced to refuse a passenger with special needs if his/her transportation or boarding is not possible due to the size of the aircraft or its doors.
