FREMEC (Frequent Traveler Medical Card) is a document to make life easier for frequent flyer passengers who have special medical conditions of permanent and stable nature. After medical evaluation and having verified the required conditions, the FREMEC card will be available to the passenger and will be valid for a period of 1 year. Passengers with the card will no longer need to submit the MEDIF (Medical Information Form) form, just the FREMEC, an identification document and the ticket, ensuring faster service and boarding.
Examples of assistance provided to persons with reduced mobility due to chronic and stable disabilities are:
- Mobility disability;
- Visual disability;
- Hearing disability.
Special medical condition excludes those with permanent and stable mental illness, intellectual disabilities and co-morbidities associated with such disabilities.
In case the passenger has a stable or severe chronic illness condition, including post and preoperative, the MEDIF medical form should be completed, as described here.
Provided that they are stable, the following medical conditions generally do not require medical authorization and, therefore, do not require any special assistance, thus not requiring the MEDIF or FREMEC:
- Diabetes Mellitus;
- High blood pressure or high cholesterol;
- Artificial limbs.
It is important to highlight that the FREMEC card cannot be issued to passengers with new needs (in such a situation, a new assessment is required) or passengers who require oxygen during the flight.
Important: Passengers holding the FREMEC card must, immediately, inform AZUL whenever their medical condition changes or worsens. If you have any questions, our email firstname.lastname@example.org is available.
In addition, AZUL highlights that the information required in the medical form arises from legal requirements and are essential to enable air transportation services. Thus, FREMEC is handled as sensitive data, analyzed by specialized medical professionals only and protected in accordance with medical confidentiality and passenger privacy prerogatives
