The FREMEC is a document that facilitates the lives of frequent passengers with special medical conditions. After medical evaluation, the FREMEC card will be available to passengers and valid for 1 year. With this card, it is no longer necessary to present a medical certificate every time you travel, just present the document at the time of boarding, guaranteeing promptness and privacy.

The FREMEC card may be granted to frequent passengers, who need mobility assistance due to chronic and stable disability, such as:

  • Mobility disability;
  • Visual disability;
  • Hearing disability.

The FREMEC condition excludes those with mental illness, intellectual disabilities and co-morbidities associated with such deficiencies.

On the other hand, the MEDIF should be completed when passengers have a chronic stable disability or an acute disability, including post and preoperative, 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;
  • Arthritis;
  • Artificial limbs.

It is important to highlight that the FREMEC card cannot be issued for passengers with new needs or passengers who require oxygen during the flight.
