Assisted travel

At Jet2holidays, we believe that travel should be accessible to everyone, and we are committed to making our flights and holidays as easy as possible for all.

We have a number of services available to you, depending on your personal requirements. Some of these are our responsibility and others are the responsibility of the airport from which you are travelling. Once we know your personal requirements, we will communicate with the airport to make the arrangements. All we ask is that you let us know as soon as possible and no later than 72 hours before your flight departs.

We’re with you every step of the way

Assistance dogs

Where allowed, registered assistance dogs can be carried on our flights. We don’t carry any other animals onboard.


Registered assistance dogs must be trained by an organisation that’s an accredited member of the International Guide Dog Federation (IGDF) or an organisation that meets the full membership criteria of Assistance Dogs International (ADI). Plus, they must be microchipped, vaccinated against rabies and hold a valid pet passport.


If you need to travel with a registered assistance dog on one of our flights, you must tell us in advance by calling us on 0800 408 5591 or messaging us on WhatsApp.

Popular FAQs

Do I need a fit to fly certificate?

If you’re travelling while pregnant, you’ll need a fit to fly certificate. One of the following documents will be required:

  • A Fit to Fly certificate that’s provided by a doctor or midwife on surgery/hospital headed paper, signed and dated within seven days of your departure and 16 days of your return.
  • A pregnancy Fit to Fly certificate provided by us and completed by your medical professional. Please make sure this is signed and stamped for verification purposes, as this certificate will not be valid if incomplete. You can download the certificate here. 

How do I book mobility assistance?

You can book mobility assistance by contacting our Assisted Travel team on 0800 408 5591 or on WhatsApp. 

Can I book an extra leg room seat if I’ve used mobility assistance?

Unfortunately not, all of our extra legroom seats are classed as emergency exit rows, so we’re unable to offer extra legroom seats to assistance customers.

I’ve got a nut allergy – what measures will be taken onboard to keep me safe?

Jet2.com no longer serve nut-based products onboard, but we can’t guarantee that other customers won’t bring their own nut products. However, if our Cabin Crew are made aware of a customer with a nut allergy, they’ll announce this at the beginning of the flight to make sure everyone knows there’s someone on the plane with a nut allergy. They’ll also tell customers not to eat any nut-based food during the flight. If you have a nut allergy, please inform us beforehand so the Cabin Crew can make this announcement, and let the crew onboard know that you have a nut allergy.

Can I make the company aware that I’ve got a hidden disability?

Of course. Our friendly Customer Helpers have all received training on hidden disabilities and will do everything possible to help you and make your experience as easy as possible. Please contact our Assisted Travel team on 0800 408 5591 before you travel to book assistance or to make us aware of any specific requirements. We’ll make every effort to accommodate your needs throughout your journey.
