If you will fly

FAA rulings state that all US airlines require a physician's letter explaining your oxygen needs to fly with oxygen on a commercial airline.

You must use airline-supplied oxygen. There is a charge and arrangements must be made in advance. Advance notice requirements vary from airline to airline, so call as far in advance as possible.Airlines can charge either by flight or by the amount of oxygen used. Airlines do not provide oxygen in the terminals. Separate arrangements must be made.

At your destination

Oxygen is readily available in US, but may be harder to obtain abroad. To arrange oxygen at your destination contact your local supplier. Many local dealers belong to a network of oxygen providers or a national chain that can assist with arrangements.
