Air Line Flight Information

Airline Travel with Oxygen
When I have needed oxygen to fly, I've always had my travel agent contact the airlines medical desk and they in turn contact me and my physician since they will need a prescription for the oxygen. I usually do this a couple weeks in advance of my flight and then call a few days before the flight to be sure they have the prescription and have me listed for the oxygen.
