What's the point in having a portable oxygen concentrator, if you can't take it with you anywhere you would want to go? The main reason why portable oxygen concentrators exist, is so you can receive the oxygen therapy you need, while maintaining the freedom you had before you started using one. You need to be able to leave the house, exercise, and go on vacation with your family this summer. You shouldn't feel left out of the fun.
If you want to go on vacation in the Summer of 2014 and you have to get there by air, don't worry. Every one of our portable oxygen concentrators are approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for use on any flight traveling to or from United States soil. Oxygen tanks are definitely not allowed on board commercial flights, and that's why portable oxygen concentrators are the better choice for those who want to do some traveling.
You always have to call the individual airline first and see what their requirements are, before booking your flight. Each airline has its own stipulations about the use of portable oxygen concentrators. The amount of battery life they require you to bring along will vary, depending on their policies, as well as how long you will need to use it while on board. Most of the time, you will need a lot more than what you will actually be using, and that's because they want you to be covered in the event of delays or emergencies.
