Are CPAP machines allowed on airplanes?
We recommend checking with your airline prior to departure, but in many cases CPAP machines are treated as a medical device and therefore not counted towards your normal carry-on luggage allowance. As with any electrical device – such as a laptop or mobile phone – you may be asked to remove your machine from its case for inspection before passing through the metal detectors. You should have no problems storing your CPAP machine in checked luggage but if you’re flying overnight it’s important that you have a machine on hand. See our blog for more information on air travel with a CPAP machine.
