Important information on travelling for: disabled passengers, with reduced mobility, travelling with children, pregnant women, unaccompanied minors, with pets

Pregnant women

Pre-departure pregnant passengers should check conditions of carriage with the airlines they are travelling with, as there are no universal blanket rules or travel limitations with regards to this matter.
 Every airline requires medical consent to travel, however, the week of gestation that this is necessary for differs from one airline to another. What is important, however, is the possession of such certification from an appropriate medical practitioner, as per the conditions of each airline. We suggest that the certificate should also be provided in English, but airlines may have individual requirements in this regard. The certificate may be needed to be shown at check-in and / or when boarding.

Travel with a child

Passengers traveling with a child up to the age of 2 have the option of priority check in and security screening. During the check-in, special voice messages inform passengers of this. Prams and strollers may be checked in or may be stored directly at the gate(after security check). Passenger service staff will ensure the pram or stroller is appropriately marked. A baby carrier may be taken to the plane, but it cannot be brought on board the aircraft itself. The carrier should then be left to ground staff at the aircraft, and the staff will ensure it is placed in the luggage hold.

In hand luggage, for children up to 2 years of age, you may carry (apart from the imposed limits) fluids necessary for the child during the journey. This may be milk and other liquid foods. All liquids should be declared to the operator, before the safety check, they will be subjected to a separate screening.

At the airport, in each of the terminals, both in the public and restricted areas, there are rooms intended for carers and their children, with changing changing tables and washbasins.

Unaccompanied Minors (UM)

The provisions regarding unaccompanied minors vary depending on the carrier, therefore, before booking, you should read the general conditions of carriage for the airline. Some airlines offer assistance to minors both at the airport and on board the aircraft. More information may be obtained by contacting the selected carrier.

Travel with animals

Only some airlines allow the transport of animals on board the aircraft. The carriage of an animal requires the consent of the carrier for each flight separately. Please check up to date information and current conditions of carriage prior to every flight. 

Wizz Air
WizzAir does not allow animals to be transported except guide dogs who travelling as guide dogs.

Ryanair does not allow for the carriage of animals or freight loads on its flights, except guide dogs on certain routes.

Depending on the type of animal, its weight and size as well, as the regulations in force in other countries, it is possible to pay to have an animal as additional cabin baggage in the passenger cabin or as excess baggage in an air-conditioned luggage compartment. Lufthansa Cargo also offers transport of animals as cargo. In the case of assistance dogs, special provisions apply.

LOT allows for the transport of pets (cats or dogs). The animal will be placed in the passenger cabin or in the luggage hold depending on its weight and size. Only a limited number of animals can be taken on board the aircraft. If you intend to travel with an animal, this should be reported to a consultant at the LOT Contact Center at least 24 hours prior to departure.

The carrier allows for travelling with an animal on an aircraft, both in the passenger cabin (up to 10 kg) and in the luggage compartment. The animal may only travel with an adult passenger.
