5 steps before traveling with medical oxygen

#1 Contact your doctor/GP to make sure it is safe for you to be traveling with your medical condition, You will not be able to bring your own oxygen on-board with you, so you will have to arrange your oxygen use for your flight.

#2 In advance call the airline and speak with the correct department to make your arrangement on board. The OxygenWorldwide team can help with this process if you provide your prescription with your enquiry.

#3 Make sure that you confirm that you meet the requirements of the carrier. Confirm with them that they can provide the flow of air you need and whether or not they will provide you with a nasal cannula or mask.

# 4 It is best 48 hours prior to departing on your travels it is best to confirm all of your arrangements by phone or email and make sure to go over all of the rules and regulations that the airlines give you. Typically, the airlines will direct you to a website with rules.

# 5 These same steps apply if you are traveling by train or cruise ship. If cruising, make sure to contact the company before purchasing tickets. Many cruise line operators do not allow oxygen tanks on board the ship.
