Are you dependent on supplemental oxygen and wish to bring your own tanks?

Most major carriers now allow the use of “Portable Oxygen Concentrators”. You can carry on your own concentrator as well as use it during a layover. Inquire with the carrier as to their requirements or if they require an MD letter. Check with your home oxygen vendor to see if they can provide you with a small portable concentrator. For long trips, battery use may become a factor as they may only last a few hours. Most carriers still offer “in-flight” oxygen tanks but will not provide oxygen therapy during your layover. This is where the use of your own equipment would be beneficial.
