We aim to make air travel easier for people with lung conditions. Every week, we receive a new query on how to arrange travel with additional oxygen.
It is often difficult to find all the information you need in one place. The following sections provide guidance on how to plan your air travel.
If you are looking for more information on airline oxygen policies and contact details, visit our airline index.
If you are looking for details of oxygen providers in other countries, download our European oxygen providers list, which was kindly provided by the European Industrial Gases Association. You might find these details useful if you are travelling to another country and need to arrange medical oxygen whilst you are there.
For any further information or suggestions, contact us.
HOW TO PLAN YOUR AIR TRAVEL
- Speak to your doctor to check your oxygen requirements
- If your doctor recommends that you fly with additional oxygen, check airline oxygen policy
- Allow plenty of time to book your flight, as completing each step may take longer than you expect
