Medical cases


Should your health condition require special attention at boarding, leaving the aircraft, or during flight, you must indicate this at the time you book your flight. For your safety, we may seek medical clearance from our doctor if we have doubts about your ability to travel. In this case, a Medical Certificate of Fitness for Air Travel (MEDIF) must be filled in by your attending physician and signed by the airline doctor.

Passengers who are required to fill in a MEDIF form will not be able to purchase their ticket online. Please contact your nearest Air Mauritius office for your booking.

If you need to carry medical equipment on board such as incubators, respirators, nebulizers, or ventilators, please note that special conditions apply and that a request must be made to Air Mauritius at least 72 hours before departure.

Please also note that dependant passengers must be accompanied by an able-bodied person capable of assisting them with their physiological needs during the flight. 

Passengers with reduce mobility

Heathrow Airport offers services to assist persons with reduced mobility at the airport. Special arrangements may be made for passengers with other disabilities. In the event that we must escort a passenger, we will need to be informed at least 72 hours before departure.

Please check Amadeus entries to inform us about your passenger’s specific need:

  • WCHR  (Wheelchair Ramp) – Assistance to the aircraft

A passenger with a walking disability: requires a wheelchair or similar aid before embarkation or after disembarkation; requires assistance in the airport terminal to/from the gate or exit; can manage steps and use an apron passenger bus unaided. Does not need assistance in the cabin

  • WCHS  (Wheelchair Steps) – Assistance to the aircraft door

A passenger with a severe walking disability: has very restricted mobility; cannot manage steps aided and is unable to use an apron passenger vehicle; does not, however, need assistance in the cabin

  • WCHC  (Wheelchair Carry) – Assistance to the aircraft seat

A passenger who is unable to walk: but can use a passenger seat with the backrest in the upright position; cannot move unaided (e.g. on account of paraplegia or advanced multiple sclerosis).

Deaf or blind passengers cannot travel on board with their pets (please check the passengers travelling with pets section).

Passengers travelling with infant

Infants may travel without a medical clearance after the first week.

For your infant's comfort, there are cots available  on international flights. Because the number of cots is limited,  consider requesting one at the time you book your flight. Your request  will only be confirmed at check-in.


Please note that our baby cots can accommodate  infants up to 12 months old and/or weighing up to 11 kg, depending on  whichever condition is more restrictive.

Two infants accompanied by one adult may travel only if one of the two infants is over 12 months and is able to sit in a car seat approved for use on an aircraft. If this case applies to you, you will need to inform us at the time you book your flight and pay the applicable fare for the seat occupied by the child.

Unaccompanied minors


Passengers between 5 and 12 years old may travel alone as Unaccompanied Minors (UM) on our flights.

However, UMs are not allowed to travel on flights that are not operated by Air Mauritius for travel to Paris and via Paris. The above restriction applies equally to our interline and code share partner. Guardians must inform Air Mauritius of UM at the time the flight is booked and fill out the necessary documentation. A service fee may apply.
