Holiday travel can be hectic. Here at Oxygen Butler we want to help you spend more time doing the things you love and less time dealing with the obstacles of traveling with oxygen. This week we gathered advice from Jack Bluni, our Oxygen Butler Rental Specialist, to help you get where you’re going as smooth as possible.
1. What do customers need to prepare ahead of time in order to fly with an oxygen concentrator?
Jack: There are a lot of things to consider when flying with oxygen. What airline are you flying? How long is the flight time? Are you on a pulse setting or continuous flow? Lastly, what is most important to you in a POC; size and weight or cost? If you have answers for all of these questions it will help tremendously when renting a unit. Once you have your concentrator and you are boarding the plane make sure that you have your prescription on hand as well as the Physician Consent form, specific to the airline you are flying, to help prevent any issues.
