Oxygen Rules & Regulations For Airlines 1-800-489-8165
Which Portable Oxygen Concentrators are approved for Airline Travel?
New Regulations protects Passengers Using Oxygen Devices on Airplanes
Effective May 13th of 2009 every US air carrier must permit the use of approved portable oxygen concentrator (POC) devices on all domestic and international flights. This is also true for foreign carriers but only on flights departing or returning to US soil.
A new ruling was instituted by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) in May this year requiring airlines to accept certain approved portable oxygen concentrators (POCís) aboard flights. The DOT will give airlines time to implement these changes until May 13, 2009. This rule will apply to U.S. air carriers worldwide and to foreign air carriers whose flights begin or end in the U.S. The Department of Transportation has not yet decided whether to require airlines to provide free in-flight medical oxygen to passengers.
Always check with your airline when booking travel to understand how and when these rules are being implemented. The Airline Oxygen Council of American web site (www.airlineoxygencouncil.org) lists various airlinesí policies regarding in-flight oxygen use and equipment.

communicate with your Airline about the use of POCís.
According to the DOT ruling, passengers are expected to inform the air carrier about the intended use of POCís on board while making the flight reservation. Airlines in return are required to give passengers who declare their intention to use a POC aboard the following information:
1. Any requirements for advance check-in. Airlines may require
travelers to notify the airline up to 48 hours in advance if the traveler
wishes to use a device.
The new DOT regulation contains specific directions in regards to batteries that are needed for POCs.
1. The airlines may require travelers to carry enough fully charged
batteries required to operate their POC for at least 150 percent of the
expected maximum flight duration. This includes the total duration of the
flight from arrival at the gate including any possible delays that may
occur during a flight.

PORTABLE OXYGEN CONCENTRATOR REVIEWS
I liked the Eclipse because I just wanted to make sure that I could switch over to the continuous setting if I needed to. It was approved by my airline and I didn't mind pulling it with the wheels. My physician also wanted me to have the continuous setting while I was sleeping. I use it all the time and great information from this dealer. Highly recommend!!!
My review is very good for this vendor. They treated me very well and were very helpful in giving me the options of each machine. As for the oxygen machine that I can take with me, I chose the Invacare XPO2 because I could carry it on my shoulder and with the extra battery I could go to the lodge meetings again and not worry about pulling a machine around or running out of oxygen like with my tanks.
Vienna Medical is great! The best prices anywhere and what great customer service. Barbara is a god send. Bless you.
For me the Inogen was the right choice. The pulse output was good enough, so my doctor said, and I could fly almost any airline to see my family in Florida. It is still pretty light and the weight is fine. It also last pretty long with the extra battery. I am on 2 leaders and living life with COPD. Thanks again guys!
Thank you so much for helping me see my grandkids. I can travel without hesitation and trust my new Airsep machine. I will recommend you and the Airsep to everyone. You had the best price and the best service I could find! You have no idea how much this has changed my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you,
Love to all, JAJ
