Share your experiences of flying with PH

The European Lung Foundation (ELF) is inviting PH patients and their carers to share their experiences of flying with oxygen.

The charity has put together a short survey to help them find out how to make air travel easier for people who require assistance with breathing, as part of a joint project with the European Respiratory Society (ERS).

They are working together to try to make the process easier for people flying with oxygen, by bringing together people with lung conditions, healthcare professionals, and all of the relevant stakeholders involved in air travel and oxygen, to try and improve the process.

A spokesperson from ELF said: “When you live with a lung condition, travelling by air with oxygen can unfortunately be quite difficult, with different airlines having different rules and procedures. The survey aims to find out more about the obstacles and challenges people may have had when flying, and to gather suggestions for ways to improve the situation.”

The survey is open until Friday 19 August, 2016. The results will be included in a workshop involving people with lung conditions, healthcare professionals and the travel industry at the ERS International Congress 2016 in London in September.
