As it is comfortable, fast, and safe, an increasing number of patients with heart disease prefer to travel by flight. However, there is not much information about the problems that patients with arrhythmia may experience during air travel. In addition, the precautions to be taken with these patients during a flight are uncertain. In this review, the management of patients with cardiac conduction problems during flight was examined in detail.
