Accepted models are approved by Transport Canada and subject to change without notice. Personal Oxygen Concentrators must be self-powered, as there are no power sources available on board our aircraft.
Spare lithium or lithium ion batteries may only be transported in your carry-on baggage (carry-on maximum size 23 x 40 x 51 cm (9 x 16 x 20 in) including wheels and handles) under controlled conditions and sizes, and quantity is limited to the amount needed for the duration of your flight. Dry cell and gel batteries are accepted; however, we do not transport wet cell batteries, or any battery that is damaged or leaking.
Please contact us to discuss your medical equipment and acceptance for travel.
Supplemental medical oxygen
To ensure your safety and wellbeing, Air Transat provides oxygen kits as medically required*, from your departure airport to your airport of arrival, on most routes. You may not bring personal oxygen kits (O2 tanks/cylinders, liquid, canned or recreational oxygen) into the cabin on Air Transat flights.
Our oxygen supplier is VitalAire. Our MediPak is equipped with "D" cylinder model 390 I. This type of oxygen machine can be used occasionally or on a continuous flow during the flight.
|One (1) kit consists of a full cylinder of 2,000 pSi Approximate pressure at 21ºC (70ºF)
|Flow (litres per minute)
*Please contact us for rates and charges. Because your medical oxygen supply is based on your doctor’s orders, we are unable to provide a refund for unused supplies.
We encourage you to contact our Information and Seat Selection Centre so that we may arrange appropriate seating. Bulkhead and Emergency Exit seating is not available for passengers using oxygen, as the cylinders must be stored under the seat in front for take-off and landing.
You may bring your own empty cylinder carefully packed as carry-on if the size conforms to regulations or as checked baggage.
