Can I carry a medical device on board?
You may bring necessary mobility aids or medical devices, such as canes or elbow crutches, into the cabin with you. However, it's important to note that this allowance is only meant for the assistive device and does not extend to additional baggage.
Normally breathing devices such as personal oxygen concentrators (POC) and apnea breathing devices (CPAP) are permitted on board. For the use of medical devices during your flight, please inform us well in advance by filling out this form latest 48 hours before departure.
Most CPAP machines require a medical inverter to be installed to function properly onboard. All aircraft types do not have an inverter facility, but we can check the availability approx. 72 hours before departure. The inverter can be requested for long-haul flights with no additional charge for the passenger.
Power supply onboard cannot be guaranteed, so you must be able to get by even without your breathing device if required. For battery-operated devices, please carry a sufficient back-up battery supply to cover a minimum of 150% of the planned flight (including transiting time).
