CPAP Devices: 

Continuous Positive Airways Pressure machines may be carried within the cabin on a Flybe flight providing the power is disconnected so that it cannot be inadvertently switched on. If you need to carry your medical equipment with you on your flight, this can be carried free of charge in addition to your cabin baggage. You must bring a prescription letter or signed doctor's note on headed paper in order to carry your CPAP machine. If you feel there may be a possibility that the CPAP machine will need to be used during your flight, please contact our special assistance team a minimum of 48 hours before travel to ensure we're able to organize any requests.
