Transporting a dead body by air in India involves a specific set of procedures and regulations that need to be followed to ensure a respectful and lawful transfer. Here are the steps to transport a deceased person by air in India:
- Obtain a Death Certificate:
- Before any arrangements can be made for transporting a dead body, you must obtain a death certificate from the local municipal authority or the concerned hospital where the person passed away. This certificate is essential for all legal and administrative purposes.
- Embalming :
- If the body is being transported over a long distance or if there will be a significant delay before the burial or cremation, embalming may be necessary to preserve the body. Ensure that the embalming is done by a licensed embalmer.
- Arrange for a Suitable Container:
- The deceased person must be placed in an airtight container or casket that meets the airline’s requirements. Airlines often have specific guidelines for the transportation of human remains, so check with the airline for their container requirements.
- Obtain a No Objection Certificate (NOC):
- You will typically need a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the local police and health authorities. The NOC confirms that there are no legal or health issues related to the transportation of the body. You may also need an NOC from the airport authorities.
- Book the Flight:
- Once you have all the necessary documents and permissions, book the flight. Make sure to provide the airline with all the required information, including the details of the deceased person, the death certificate, and the NOCs.
- Arrange for Transportation to and from the Airport:
- You will need to arrange for transportation to the departure airport and from the arrival airport to the final destination (funeral home, crematorium, or burial site). Some airlines may offer transportation services for human remains.

- Embalming is a preservation process employed on deceased bodies to temporarily delay decomposition. It entails the infusion of specialized chemicals into the vascular system, typically through an artery, in order to disinfect, sanitize, and maintain the deceased’s physical appearance. This practice is often used to facilitate viewings, visitations, and funerals, especially when there’s a need for an extended period between death and burial or cremation. Additionally, embalming can aid in restoring a more lifelike appearance to the deceased and reduce the risk of transmitting diseases. It’s worth noting that the use of embalming varies based on cultural, religious, and regional preferences.
