3. Carriage of passengers and special services and registration

Carriage of expectant mothers
In order to ensure the health and well-being of the mother and child, the following rules apply:
After the 28th week of pregnancy without complications:
request a written report from your midwife or doctor (dated no earlier than two weeks before the flight) that confirms that your condition allows you to fly.
Present this report when checking in at the airport and/or at the boarding gate.

The report must include the following:
- A confirmation that you have not had any complications during your pregnancy.
- The predicted date of birth.
- A confirmation that you are in good health and that your condition allows you to fly.

NOUVELAIR reserves the right to refuse permission to board to any passenger who has been pregnant for more than 28 weeks and who does not present this report.
For pregnancies without complications, carriage shall be refused:
- After the 32nd week of the pregnancy if the mother is expecting twins or triplets.
- After the 36th week of a pregnancy without complications in which one child is expected.

Carriage of new-born infants
Due to the physical effects of flying at high altitudes, a child must be at least eight days old in order to be permitted to fly on one of our flights.
Request that your doctor prepare a report regarding your child that states that the child’s condition allows him or her to fly.
Likewise, the mother of the child is not permitted to fly until 48 hours after the birth, and then only if there were no complications or surgical procedures during the birth. This period is extended to ten days if the mother had a Caesarean delivery or underwent a surgical procedure. This decision depends on the permission given by the attending physician.

Sick passengers
Any sick passengers shall be admitted to board a flight only if they present a physician's report containing the expression "the person is fit to travel by air". Passengers may obtain such reports either from their own physicians or the physician serving at the airport. The report must be written in English.
Any passengers with any infectious /contagious disease shall not be admitted to any flight. Such passengers may travel only if they present a physician's report stating that such disease is no longer of infectious/contagious nature.

The following conditions describe situations in which a passenger must be accompanied:

All passengers must be able to act on their own behalf in the categories defined below. If this is not the case, the particular passenger must be accompanied by an authorised person 16 years of age or older who is able to provide the required assistance.
- The passenger must be able to use the toilet without assistance.
- The passenger must be able to eat and drink without assistance.
- The passenger must be able to take medication and take care of him- or herself without assistance.

The following are also included here:
- Anyone who suffers from a mental disorder and is not able to understand or react appropriately to the safety instructions given by the NOUVELAIR crew.
- Anyone who can neither hear nor speak and cannot communicate with the NOUVELAIR crew in order to comply with the safety instructions.
Passengers in one of these categories must inform NOUVELAIR, at the time of booking if possible, either online or by telephone at the number for NOUVELAIR special assistance at +216 73520 450.
Passengers in these categories must be accompanied on the flight (by an authorised person who is 16 years of age or older). Accompanying passengers must pay the corresponding flight price at the time of booking.

Passengers with limited mobility
Passengers with limited mobility can book special assistance at our NOUVELAIR website or by telephone at the number for special assistance at +216 73520 450.

For safety reasons, only four passengers per flight may have disabilities or limited mobility or suffer from sensory deprivation or have physical limitations.
The number of such passengers is limited due to safety considerations for all passengers, including those with disabilities or limited mobility, particularly in the case that an emergency evacuation is necessary.

Passengers with limited mobility who have notified the airline in advance regarding their disabilities must be at the boarding gate at least 30 minutes before departure. You will board the aircraft as soon as general boarding is completed and you will have seat(s) reserved especially for you on board.

At most airports you are allowed to board the aircraft in our own wheelchair.
However, at some airports passengers are not permitted to board the aircraft in their electronically operated wheelchairs. In this case, you must check your wheelchair. You will be brought to the boarding gate in one of the airport’s wheelchairs. Wheelchairs, electric vehicles and walkers are transported at no charge.

Special medical baggage

Special medical devices, e.g. portable oxygen tanks, that meet NOUVELAIR requirements are allowed on board during the flight. Certain other medical devices (respirators, portable dialysis equipment) are allowed on board, but their use is not permitted.
If you wish to bring medical devices with you on board or if you need to use medical equipment during the flight, we recommend that you contact us either at the NOUVELAIR email address for special assistance (reservation(at) or by telephone at +216 73 520 450. Then we can determine whether or not your request can be approved and we can make sure that the respective device be permitted.

Carriage of mortal remains or human ashes
NOUVELAIR does not allow the transportation of mortal remains.
Transportation of human ashes is permitted in carry-on baggage (in addition to the one piece normally allowed). To do so, the passenger must present a copy of the death certificate and a confirmation from the crematorium. The passenger must ensure that that the ashes are transported in a suitable container with a screw-type closure which is protected against damage.
Please note that the safety personnel at the airport may carry out additional checks.

Passengers who intend to transport ashes are asked to contact the NOUVELAIR department for special assistance at +216 73 520 450 or to communicate your request by email (reservation(at) so that we can inform all of the employees at the respective locations.
