Should your health condition require special attention at boarding, deplaning, 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.
For more information, please contact your nearest Air Mauritius office.
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 non-autonomous passengers must be accompanied by an able-bodied person capable of assisting them with their physiological needs during the flight.

Air Mauritius may store personal medical equipment upon a passenger's request. This is entirely at the discretion of Air Mauritius, who will not be held liable. Passengers will need to fill in a discharge sheet
and have it signed by a crew member.
