Flying with artificial limbs (prosthesis)

All artificial limbs are accepted for carriage and use on Air New Zealand aircraft.

Due to limited stowage space in the cabin you may be restricted to carrying only one spare limb as part of your cabin baggage, additional limbs may be stowed as checked baggage. Please be aware that longer items (legs for above-knee amputees for example) may not be able to be accommodated in the cabin of the aircraft. Please package longer prosthesis' sufficiently for protection should they need to be checked-in, if required to be checked in there will be no charge.

Aviation Security

Aviation Security may want to see a medical certificate for your prosthesis from your physician or medical specialist. We encourage you to carry one of these certificates that can be shown to Security staff if requested.
