Hello, and welcome!

My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to assist you today.

According to the TSA, you are permitted to bring the portable oxygen concentrator with you as carry-on baggage, but there are rules. First, it is suggested that you check with your airline first, to make sure they will allow it. Also, you will need to check with the manufacturer to make sure it can be brought on the plane. A letter from your doctor stating that it's medically necessary, should help (it might be 'required' and you need to ask your airline) and how you're screened depends on whether or not you can disconnect from the portable oxygen for a short, long, or any period of time. You can see all the additional details, HERE

Hello and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you today!

You will not be able to bring just any letter from your doctor. Each airline has a specific form that you will need to have completed by your doctor in order to take that on the plane with you.

If you let me know which airline you will be traveling on I can get that form for you.

Let me know if you have further questions and I will be happy to help you with getting the right forms for you so that when you arrive at the airport you will not have any issues and will have the proper paperwork for international travel.

Hope
