Different airlines have different rules. Most require a doctors 28 weeks upwards (some say 30 weeks upwards) and the doctors note must be valid so they will not accept you for travel if 6 weeks have expired since written for going and coming back. If a multiple birth some may not accept you after 28 weeks. Now some airline won't let you fly past 32, some 34 and some 36 weeks if you are not having a complicated pregnancy. So before you book check with that airline first for its restrictions. I think most charter airlines like thomson/first choice will not accept you from 34 weeks onward.
