Oxygen To Go

Oxygen and Arrangements per the TSA website.

Passengers are responsible for making the arrangements with:

  • The airline(s) for supplemental Oxygen onboard the aircraft.
  • Local providers for oxygen use during any layover stop(s) and at the final destination.
  • The airline, friends, relatives or a local supplier for removal of the canister from the originating airport's gate area immediately after you leave the gate area to board the aircraft.

 

When You Make Your Reservation:

Arranging for Supplemental Oxygen (O2) Aboard the Aircraft

  • Neither the Air Carrier Access Act nor the Americans with Disabilities Act require airlines to provide oxygen service. Consequently, airline policies, procedures and services on accommodating passengers who use supplemental oxygen vary widely.
  • Notify the carrier when you make your reservation that you will need to use supplemental oxygen aboard the aircraft(s).
  • Ask about the airline's policies on the use of supplemental O² onboard. Federal regulations prohibit airlines from allowing passengers to bring their own oxygen canisters aboard to use during the flight. Passengers who use oxygen canisters must purchase canisters from the airline for use during the flight. However, some airlines do permit passengers to bring aboard oxygen concentrators, which do not contain oxygen, and use them during the flight. Policies vary from carrier to carrier, so be sure to check with your airline well in advance.
  • Keep in mind that not all airlines offer supplemental oxygen service, or may not offer it aboard all their aircraft. Inquire whether: 1) the airline provides oxygen service, 2) it is available on the flights you wish to take, and 3) you must provide a doctor's letter, or permit them to contact your doctor directly to verify your medical need.

Arranging for Supplemental Oxygen during Layovers or at Your Destination

  • Notify the carrier(s) you are traveling with that you will need oxygen at the airport(s). Let them know that your O² supplier will be meeting you at the gate with an O² canister.
  • Ask about their policy for allowing O² suppliers to meet you at the layover airports and/or at your destination gate.
  • Contact your O² supplier and request that they make arrangements for your O² at the city or cities you'll require. The supplier will need to know the airline(s) you'll be using, departure and arrival dates and time, departure and arrival gates, flight number(s), arrival time(s), and the equipment you will need. Make all these arrangements as soon as possible.
  • If a representative from the oxygen-providing company is going to meet your flight with an O² canister, arrange for your flight(s) to arrive during the supplier's normal business hours, if possible. Also, have a local phone number and a contact person in the event of any unforeseen situation(s), such as if their representative is not at the arrival gate when you get there.
Inogen One

We rent several different models of portable oxygen concentrators (POCs) for periods from a week to months. Every rental includes 24-hour access to respiratory therapists and board-certified physicians. And we can deliver these units to you FAST!

Did you know? With the FAA ruling, airlines require that you must have 150% of your flight time in battery time. So with a six hour flight, you would need nine hours of battery time. Call us with any questions at 877-736-8691

Customer Testimonial (view all)

Thanks so much for a terrific product and superb customer service. I needed to fly my 80-year-old, oxygen and wheelchair dependent father from Syracuse NY to Sarasota FL, on an indirect flight. I was worried about the entire trip, but especially about the airport time in Atlanta. The Inogen One not only provided a backup to the flight-provided oxygen, but continuous oxygen between flights and while on the road. The unit’s “cute” design is very simple and easy to use, while the instructions are straightforward. It arrived at our house without a problem and performed beautifully throughout the trip. It’s a rare and wonderful product that is so important, yet elegant in it’s simplicity. Oxygen To Go’s policies and customer service were also straight forward and pleasant. Thanks, Jimmy, for not only being a superb professional, but also for instilling confidence, being a heck of a nice guy, and fun to talk to. I am spreading accolades for Oxygen To Go to everyone I know who asks about our trip, as well as those who might possibly be needing portable oxygen. I’m so relieved that we got Dad to Florida without a problem. Oxygen To Go was instrumental in making that happen. Keep up the great service! Thanks! Many thanks!

Sincerely, Bonnie
