Long-Awaited Department of Transportation Ruling Signals Victory for Oxygen Patients
Date:5/12/2008

ines to let patients aboard with approved devices.

"This is great news for the patients who must travel with oxygen," said Miriam O'Day, who leads the AARC's legislative efforts in Washington, D.C. "Travel will be so much more accessible and convenient for them. It's safe, it's secure and it opens many possibilities for those who have been reluctant to travel in the past."

The rule will apply to U.S. airlines worldwide and foreign airlines whose flights begin or end in the United States. It will take effect officially in one year, providing the airlines with ample time to organize proper procedures to implement the regulation.

"Many oxygen-dependent patients have struggled with air travel, and when portable concentrators finally were allowed to be a carry-on item, many major airlines still chose not to permit their usage," O'Day said. "Now, respiratory patients have access and enforceability that has been a long time coming."
