1. The passenger must be capable of hearing the unit's alarms, seeing the alarm light indicators, and have the cognitive ability to take the appropriate action in response to the various caution and warning alarms and alarm light indicators, or be traveling with someone who is capable of performing those functions;
  2. The user must ensure that the POC is free of oil, grease or other petroleum products and is in good condition free from damage or other signs of excessive wear or abuse;
  3. Passenger must notify Icelandair of intent to bring a POC onboard at the time of reservation. Passenger must also notify Icelandair at check in for the flight and notify cabin crew at time of boarding and must allow the crew of the aircraft to review the contents of the physician's statement. The passenger must have a written statement, to be kept in that person's possession, signed by a licensed physician that
    • States whether the user of the device has the physical and cognitive ability to see, hear, and understand the device's aural and visual cautions and warnings and is able, without assistance, to take the appropriate action in response to those cautions and warnings;
    • States whether or not oxygen use is medically necessary for all or a portion of the duration of the trip;
    • Specifies the maximum oxygen flow rate corresponding to the pressure in the cabin of the aircraft under normal operating conditions.
  4. Only lotions or salves that are oxygen approved may be used by persons using the portable oxygen concentrator device;
  5. The passenger, whose physician statement specifies the duration of oxygen use, must obtain from Icelandair, or by other means, the duration of the planned flight. The passenger must carry on the flight a sufficient number of batteries to power the device for the duration of the oxygen use specified in the user's physician statement, including a conservative estimate of any unanticipated delays; and
  6. The passenger must ensure that all POC batteries carried onboard the aircraft in carry-on baggage are protected from short circuit and are packaged in a manner that protects them from physical damage. Batteries protected from short circuit include:
    • Those designed with recessed battery terminals;
    • Those packaged so that the battery terminals do not contact metal objects (including the battery terminals of other batteries). When a battery-powered oxygen concentrator is carried onboard aircraft as carry-on baggage and is not intended to be used during the flight, the battery must be removed and packaged separately unless the concentrator contains at least two effective protective features to prevent accidental operation during transport.
