Any lung condition is a very serious diagnosis in association with fliying, and it’s significance should not be underestimated.
Despite the fact that aircrafts have pressurized cabins, the oxygen pressure in the lungs is greatly reduced during flight, which is why guests with COPD, in particular, may need extra oxygen during the flight. This can occur even if you never previously have been in need of supplementary oxygen.
Before your travel
If you have a lung condition – regardless of the stage – it is mandatory to ask for approval to fly. Contact Jettime's Customer Service, as we assist in evaluating the information needed in your specific case in order for you to be able to fly.
In most cases, we will ask you to submit a Medical Information Form (MEDIF) completed, signed and stamped by your doctor or pulmonary specialist.
You receive approval from us – or information about any reservations – soon after you submit the completed MEDIF form. If your own doctor/GP deems that you may need oxygen on board, you are to bring all necessary equipment for both out- and homebound flights.
