FAQ Answer

Anaemia - I suffer from anaemia and wonder if this would be a problem when flying.

Blood CellsPassengers with a blood count of greater than 8 may travel without problems assuming there are no other conditions such as heart or lung disease. If the count is less than 7.5 special assessment should be made and consideration to the use of supplemental oxygen should be considered. If the anaemia is chronic, passengers often tolerate a slightly lower blood count without problems in flight, but in this case it is essential that the airline is informed of precise medical information via the MEDIF Form.
