Czech Airlines does not allow you to take your own oxygen on board their aircraft. A medical certificate may be required, oxygen has to be ordered when making a booking or reserved at least 48 hours before the flight, by contacting the nearest Czech Airlines Distribution Points or via their Call Centre. The airline will provide oxygen service on flights operated by an ATR 42, A319 and A320 aircraft at an additional charge of €80 per flight/container, with the capacity of 2-2,5 hours, at a flow rate of 2 lpm. At this moment there is no procedure in place for the carriage of POCs. All requests for carriage of medical equipment are made on a case by case basis. Passengers should send an email to the dedicated Point of Contact with the request to carry a POC, detailing the technical characteristics of the device.
In exceptional cases Czech Airlines might refuse to board passenger or/and his/her medical equipment due to safety reasons (provided type of aircraft, its entry/ exit door, technical equipment or narrow space aboard does not allow sufficiently safe transportation).
Passenger with reduced mobility might be required to be accompanied by another person due to safety requirements of emergency procedures.
However, they will provide oxygen at an additional charge. To use a small bottle for 2 hours, at a flow rate of 2 litres per minute, a charge of 50 euros will be incurred. A large bottle can be used for 10 hours at a flow rate of 2 litres per minute, at a charge of 100 euros. Please order oxygen when making a booking or reserve it at least 72 hours before the flight. A medical certificate may also be required.
