We must stress that it is very important to seek medical advice before travelling and get confirmation that you are fit to travel prior to booking your holiday. Flying with cystic fibrosis can present a number of risks and it is important that you treating doctor is happy with your plans. Recent studies in Europe have revealed that there are risks associated with low levels of oxygen in the blood of Cystic Fibrosis sufferers when flying at high altitude. This can cause problems with breathing in Cystic Fibrosis sufferers. However, the same research also found that cystic fibrosis sufferers travelling by air can tolerate this fluctuation for several hours. Which means there is no automatic reason that the joys of far-flung adventures can not be available to you.
