What happens if you fly after scuba diving?
Ascending to high altitude after scuba diving increases your risk of suffering from decompression sickness. Flying after diving increases this risk because of the decreasing atmospheric pressure.
How long do you have to wait after diving to fly padi?
Consensus recommendations for flying after diving
A minimum of 12-hour surface interval was recommended for the single no-decompression dive. A minimum of 18-hour surface interval for multi-day repetitive diving.
Can I dive 12 hours after flying?
Diving after flying does not in itself create a decompression problem since flying leaves you with less inert gas in your tissues than would be there had you stayed at ground level unless you land at high altitude. Because of this, there are no set guidelines for when to make your first dive.
