Oxygen on Airplanes: Can You Fly with Portable Oxygen?

Flying with Oxygen on Airplanes

Yes, you can travel with approved portable oxygen concentrators on airplanes! Often, those new to oxygen therapy wonder if the need for oxygen therapy will prevent them from visiting family far away, flying to favorite vacation spots, or embracing their passion for travel and exploration. Fear not: with Inogen portable oxygen concentrators, traveling with oxygen therapy products on planes is easy.

Airline travel with oxygen used to be a hassle. Often, flying meant arranging for delivery of oxygen supplies at your destination.

Inogen’s products make traveling with oxygen on airplane flights easy with compact, travel-approved portable oxygen concentrators that fit comfortably under your seat or in the seat next to you. The lightweight portable oxygen concentrators give patients unburdened mobility for navigating busy airports. Accessories like small carts, bags and/or backpacks made especially for Inogen portable oxygen concentrators make carrying them on even easier.
