A person can usually fly with a ruptured eardrum, but that depends on many factors: the size of the rupture, the reason for the rupture, the location of the rupture on the eardrum, and the status of the Eustachian tubes. It is always best to check with the medical provider who diagnosed your eardrum rupture.
