As of August 23, 2016 it is now easier for people to travel with a portable oxygen concentrator. The newest FAA ruling eliminates the need for a doctor signed physician statement, previously required by all airlines. As of August 23, 2016 some airlines still require a specific airline physician statement, call your airline and ask a customer service representative for the up to date rules.
A prescription for oxygen is still required by the US Food & Drug Admistration to obtain a portable oxygen concentrator. Some airlines still require notification via telephone or passenger signed document prior to travel, see your airline’s website for updated rules and regulations.
Flying with a Portable Oxygen Concentrator relies on the use of battery power. Each unit has its own battery with different battery duration times at different flow rates of oxygen and delivery methods. Most airlines require 150% of the fight time to equal the battery time. Some airlines require travel time +3 hours, including any stops along the way. Refer to your airlines battery requirements on there website or call there customer service.
