CPAP Device:

You may use your Personal Oxygen Concentrator on board any Air Transat flight. Please ask your physician to complete the Air Transat medical form within 30 days of your departure, and return it to us at least 7 business days prior to your flight. Failure to do so may prevent you from departing on your scheduled flight. Accepted models (contact the airline to confirm your specific model is allowed) 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.
