Yes,some airlines also supply oxygen onboard,but not free,
I have the inogen oxygen machine very potable which I will be travelling with to Burkina Faso next year. Good luck and wishing you all the strength.
You can't take any O2 EXCEPT a POC on board a plane. Take a look through the archives; there are lots of discussions on this topic. You can certainly do it, but you need to know the rules and what your carrier requires. That requires research, and you can do that here by looking at old discussions.
Yes you have to get prior permission from the airline and usually they prefer a concentrator in lieu of portable tanks
I believe that the problem you will have is being on 02 24/7 when you arrive in Nigeria. I lived in Kenya East Africa and I would have had to purchase a concentrator there and power is very unreliable in Kenya. I would have been tied to my home. So I moved back to the states where I have now been on 02 since 2014 and can no longer fly as the cost to rent a portable unit costs more that my plane fare!
Call the airlines you will be flying with. Tell them where you will be going and ask them about their oxygen rules. I flew to Buffalo from CA and I had to have enough battery power to cover the whole trip. I also carried charger to recharge between flights.also your dr will have a form for him to fill out for the airlines. Invacare and Ino gen are two concentrators the airlines approve. Good luckxxx
