Funeral Pre-Planning

Losing a loved one is a deeply emotional experience, and making arrangements for their final journey can be overwhelming. When it comes to transporting a deceased family member or friend by air, ensuring a seamless process is crucial during such challenging times. Noble Sparrows understands the significance of a dignified and hassle-free dead body transportation service in India. In this blog, we will walk you through the essential requirements and steps involved in the transportation process, including hospital clearance, death certificate, COVID certificate, police NOC, embalming certificate, coffin box, and identification procedures.

1. Hospital Clearance and Death Certificate

Before initiating the transportation process, it is imperative to obtain hospital clearance and a death certificate. These documents verify the cause of death and authorize the transfer of the deceased's body for air transportation.

2. COVID Certificate

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become mandatory to provide a COVID certificate for deceased body transportation. The certificate indicates that the body has been tested negative for COVID-19, ensuring the safety of airline staff and other passengers. 

3. Police NOC (No Objection Certificate)

Obtaining a Police NOC is a critical step in transporting a deceased individual by air. This certificate confirms that there are no legal impediments to the transfer of the body to its final destination.

4. Embalming Certificate

Whether the journey involves international or domestic transit, the embalming service is compulsory. This essential process ensures the preservation and proper handling of the deceased during air transportation. To comply with both international and domestic aviation regulations, an embalming certificate serves as proof that this procedure has been meticulously conducted.

5. Coffin Box

The deceased must be placed in a suitable coffin box that meets the airline's transportation guidelines. Our team at Noble Sparrows assists you in selecting an appropriate coffin box, considering your preferences and airline regulations. We understand the significance of providing a respectful and secure resting place for your dear departed.

6. ID Card and Photos

To verify the identity of the deceased, it is essential to provide official identification documents and photographs. These documents enable the airline and authorities to ensure the correct handling and transportation of the body. Noble Sparrows ensures that all identification procedures are meticulously carried out to avoid any discrepancies.
