Transavia airline’s website now describes how you can pre-order and request medical oxygen for your flight. This would be at a cost of 75€ per 400 Litres. This could be a great sign that other airlines will follow suit. Here the cost is clear for anyone needing this requirement. The airline simply request the following conditions:

  • You are able to operate the device yourself.
    Or you are travelling together with someone (aged 16 or over) who can provide assistance.
  • You require a signed medical certificate in English from an independent physician or specialist.
    The required number of litres of oxygen per minute is stated. The certificate must also state whether the oxygen is on stand-by or continuous. The medical certificate must be issued no later than 7 days before the departure of your flight and is required for all flights to and from the Netherlands.
  • You require less than 1,500 litres of oxygen per flight.
    If you require more oxygen, it is not possible to fly due to safety regulations.
  • You may not use your own oxygen bottles in the plane.
    You may take empty oxygen containers with you for use at the destination. These will be transported as hold luggage.
  • Oxygen can only be requested for flights departing and arriving at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, Rotterdam The Hague Airport and Eindhoven Airport.
    Please note that extra oxygen tanks cannot be requested for flights departing from and arriving in Belgium and France. One exception to this is the Amsterdam-Paris (Orly) route
