Requirements for onboard use of Portable Oxygen Concentrators (POC)



 
Portable Oxygen Concentrator (POC)

A Portable Oxygen Concentrator (POC) is a machine that takes normal room air and, using a series of sieves, filters, and a compressor, removes nitrogen from the air, increasing the oxygen content of the resulting air to up to 96%. JetBlue will allow individuals the use of certain POCs during flight.

Note: A POC is not to be confused with a compressed oxygen tank which Customers are strictly prohibited from carrying on any JetBlue aircraft.

Customers using Portable Oxygen Concentrators must have a sufficient number of fully charged batteries plus 50% extra battery time for the flight to cover any unforeseen delays. 

Customers that need additional oxygen while traveling must provide their own POC in order to travel. Please see additional clarifications here regarding POC travel.


Transporting a Portable Oxygen Concentrator
If a customer is transporting a Portable Oxygen Concentrator (POC) on a flight but will not be using the device, the documentation/notification and model approval are NOT required, provided the POC is FAA-approved and meets battery requirements. In order to prevent damage, the POC should be stowed in the cabin following JetBlue carry-on requirements.
