To learn more about carrying oxygen by air visit the FAA website for specific information. Also, review the FAA official documented ruling here.
Airlines often have specific information about their requirements for using oxygen while on board. CAIRE recommends contacting your airline at least 48 hours prior to your travel for more information to ensure peace of mind.
Always pack extra batteries and all electrical cords
It goes without saying, but you should always pay special attention to packing extra batteries and all your electrical cords that allow for charging your oxygen medical device when you are on the go.
Charge your device as you wait in the airport terminal or after in your vehicle.
Many airlines have specific requirements regarding the numbers of batteries you should carry on board. As a general rule, it is suggested to carry enough batteries to run your concentrator for 150% of your flight duration. This will account for scheduled air time as well as any unexpected delays or holding.
All CAIRE portable and transportable oxygen concentrators operate on both AC and DC power, as well as by battery, and can be used in motor vehicles. Please review each concentrator’s manual for specific information about use in an automobile.
Your prescription will determine what device is best for you. Devices can be purchased outright from one of our preferred internet providers or can be rented from your local medical equipment provider.
