Medical oxygen and gaseous cylinders
Gaseous oxygen or air cylinders required for medical use. Each cylinder must not exceed 5 kg gross weight. Cylinders, valves and regulators, where fitted, must be protected from damage that could cause inadvertent release of the contents.
Contact the operator(s) that you will be flying with, well ahead of your travel. They will give you further guidance on the types of oxygen cylinders that you may take and the procedures that you should follow once you arrive at the airport. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have about carrying additional cylinders for use at your destination and for the return flight.
The Operator will also ensure that the pilot-in-command is informed of the number of oxygen or air cylinders loaded on board the aircraft and their loading location(s).
Note: Personal medical oxygen devices that utilise liquid oxygen are forbidden on the person, in checked and carry-on baggage.
