Is it safe to fly with a perforated eardrum?

Allen Last updated:
Ear pain during flying occurs because of the change in air pressure in the cabin. A perforation actually allows air to move more freely than if it wasn’t perforated, so you’re unlikely to experience any problems.
You should always check with your GP whether you are fit to fly or not.
