Operating requirements. 


oxygen concentrators that satisfy the 
acceptance criteria identified in para-
graph (f)(1) of this section may be car-
ried or used by a passenger on an air-
craft provided the aircraft operator en-
sures that all of the conditions in this 
paragraph (f)(2) are satisfied: 


Exit seats. 

No person operating a 

portable oxygen concentrator is per-
mitted to occupy an exit seat. 


Stowage of device. 

During move-

ment on the surface, takeoff and land-
ing, the device must be stowed under 
the seat in front of the user, or in an-
other approved stowage location so 
that it does not block the aisle way or 
the entryway to the row. If the device 
is to be operated by the user, it must 
be operated only at a seat location that 
does not restrict any passenger’s access 
to, or use of, any required emergency 
or regular exit, or the aisle(s) in the 
passenger compartment.
