British Airways stops onboard oxygen provision

British Airways has announced it will no longer provide therapeutic oxygen on short-haul flights departing after 1st February 2018. Customers requiring therapeutic oxygen on short-haul flights will need to make their own provisions however they will still need get medical clearance and the oxygen must be from a list of acceptable providers. Whilst BA will continue to provide therapeutic oxygen onboard long-haul flights, if customers are connecting to/from a short-haul flight they will need to make their own oxygen provision for these segments.

British Airways is one of the only carriers in Europe that can offer both a business-class cabin and onboard therapeutic oxygen and therefore was often the airline of choice for insurers.
