Since 3 months have passed (good bony union and consolidation occurs), you won't have any significant symptoms or medical issue. Modern planes have pressurized cabin so it is not far different during flying. Takeoffs and landing too won't cause problem.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
