Doctors on board

With your participation in our initiative ‘Doctors on board’, you can help us if medical assistance is required during your flight.

When you register, your name and your field of expertise are stored with Miles & More so that the flight attendants can approach you in a medical emergency. If several doctors are on board at the same time, a medical consult of various medical specialities is possible.

To thank you for your registration we will give you 5,000 award miles for your first Lufthansa flight as a ‘doctor on board’ and a copy of the ‘Handbook of Aviation Medicine and Inflight Medical Emergencies’.

Liability and insurance

Your legal situation as the treating doctor on board is safeguarded: you are covered personally, under a third-party insurance that Lufthansa German Airlines has taken out for such cases, against possible claims to recourse by the passenger you have treated. Intent is of course excluded. This disclaimer of liability applies to doctors and skilled lay assistants.
