UK Airlines And CPAP


If you know where you want to go but haven’t yet selected an airline to take you and your CPAP, then use the master list below to help you make the selection that gives you maximum usage of your CPAP on long-haul flights. Don’t forget that airlines can codeshare with other airlines in their grouping, and the WORST condition can affect the whole flight. Codesharing means you have a ticket with one airline, but actually fly in an aircraft operated by another airline.

Click on the airline to open their details, then click on the links to get to specific areas of their website. These include Home Page, Special Assistance, Disability, CPAP, and contact, where available. Click the return button in your browser to get back to the SATA page

A Word of Warning – the information collected in these listings was collected in July 2018 and was correct at the time but may have been changed by the airlines since then. If you spot a change or an error, click   Contact Us  and please let us know so we can change the relevant entry.

The information on these pages is also subject to our website Terms of Use.
