When to Carry a Dead Body in Plane?

  • When a person dies in a different city or county and the body cannot be transported by Train or Road ; 
  • When the distance of transportation is very long and road transport will take many hours to reach the destination

  • Embalm the body to keep it from decomposing: The body must be embalmed to keep it from decomposing. This can be obtained from the hospital or from one of the city's private embalming centres. After the embalming is completed, you must obtain an embalming certificate in the diseased person's name.
  • Packing in a coffin box: If you need to carry a deceased person by plane, it is critical to pack the deceased person in a coffin box in order to obtain air freight permission.
  • Booking a mortuary ambulance to transfer the dead corpse to the nearest airport's air freight terminal once the body has been put in a coffin box is the next step.
  • Purchase an air freight ticket: Produce all relevant paperwork at the cargo department and obtain a ticket for the deceased person, either with or without an accompanying ticket.
  • Receiving the body: To receive the dead body at the destination airport, you must have a valid cargo ticket or ticket number.
