Medical Items On-Board

Certain items such as Portable Oxygen Concentrators (POC) that meet regulatory requirements are approved for onboard use. Other medical equipment such as a CPAP or Portable Dialysis machine can be carried but not used onboard.

Passengers are permitted to carry syringes in the aircraft cabin, if they are needed for medical reasons (for example a diabetic passenger). However, passengers should carry a doctor's letter confirming their requirement.

Should you wish to carry a defibrillator in addition to or in your cabin baggage must obtain a medical equipment baggage waiver letter by contacting our Special Assistance team (link to contact us Special Assistance). This waiver letter must be presented at the bag drop desk or at the boarding gate if travelling with no checked baggage. You will need to also carry a “fit to fly form” with you to show staff on the day of travel at the airport.
