*The most common type of battery is a lead acid battery, which is a "spillable" battery because it is filled with a highly corrosive fluid that may leak out of the battery if it is not handled properly. A gel-cell battery is considered "non-spillable" since the gel will not leak or spill out of the battery.
There is no limit to the amount of assistive devices you can bring onboard the aircraft. Assistive devices will not be considered as part of the carry-on or checked baggage limit; however, they are subject to carry-on size and weight restrictions.
Assistive devices include (but are not limited to):
Most assistive devices will fit in the overhead bins. If not, we can gate-check it, and it will be one of the first items brought to the jetbridge. You may also request to pick it up at baggage claim.
JetBlue will accept assistive devices with batteries as checked baggage as well as onboard the cabin. Assistive devices with batteries include respirators, CPAP machines, portable oxygen concentrators and ventilators. JetBlue will allow qualified individuals with a disability who are using personal respirators/ventilators to bring their equipment, including non-spillable batteries onboard the aircraft.
*Note: Batteries used for assistive devices are required to be non-spillable and the outer packaging must be plainly and durably marked “NONSPILLABLE” or “NON-SPILLABLE BATTERY”, or completely enclosed in a case. If a battery is not labeled non-spillable or completely enclosed in a case, crewmembers must treat the battery as a spillable battery. Crewmembers will apply the acceptance procedures for spillable batteries as required under the FAA safety regulations.
