EasyJet- flying when pregnany

Has anyone flown with EasyJet recently after the 28th (but before the 35th) week of pregnancy? I am finding conflicting information on the web about what the rules are. It seems like they used to require a doctors's note proclaiming "fit to fly" but that more recently this is not required. I called their customer service centre but don't have much confidence in the answer I received! (They said I didn't need a note if there were no complications). Thanks!

Hi
I recently flew with another airline who were really thorough with checking my safe to fly letter
But - I was flying with my pregnant friend to London last year with easy jet. I can't rem how many weeks she was but anyway they wouldn't let her board as the wording on the letter didn't comply with their policy!!!!!
So if you do get one make sure it's word perfect!!! Good luck

I flew with Easyjet in June when I was 28w, and when I returned I was 29w. Never had 1 mention of my pregnancy, no letter asked for (not that I had one). It says on their website that you don't need a letter at that stage.

Hello I had the same quandary a few weeks ago, search my posts for the helpful responses I got.
I also flew last weekend at 33+weeks and absolutely no questions were asked at all.
I think the confusion lies in that they haven't deleted their old policy so it still comes up in google searches. Current policy is in their website and clearly says you're ok up to 35 weeks

There policy is you are allowed to fly until the end of the 35th week for a single pregnancy and if multiple pregnant up to the end of the 32nd week without a doctors note confirming fit to fly. Where the conflicting info comes in is if your insurance requires the fit to fly note in order to make your insurance valid. But the airline doesn't require it.
