Fit to fly

Just an update from my fit to fly post from over a month ago. I went to the airport with a letter from my doctor stating my condition, medication and saying that it is well maintained and stable at the moment. This was despite Tui saying that it must be a fit to fly certificate, if not I would be refused to board.

I had requested airport assistance. Nobody asked for anything to do with fit to fly. I had been quite worried before I went imagining the worst case scenario. Not to worry, I had a wonderful week in Gran Canaria, wish I could have brought some of their lovely warm weather back for us all.

Thank you for updating us. So glad to hear you had no problems at the airport after all. It's heartening to know that travelling is still possible with fairly straightforward paperwork.

Lovely to have had a week of warmth and sunshine. Such a pity it can't be boxed up and brought home, but the memories will keep you warm for a while! :-)

Hi Susie, I am so glad you had a great break and that all the stress before over the fit to fly letter etc. did not affect your holiday. I am not at all surprised no-one asked for your fit to fly information, as previously stated this has happened to me twice now and as the letter from the doctor costs her time and me £10 a time I am infuriated by this new system. I am going away myself in Feb with Tui and thank god they did not ask for proof of being fit to fly. Take care. Maximonkey
