Medical oxygen

Page latest updated:

In case in-flight oxygen is required, it may only be arranged through the medical assistance groups approved by Finnair (currently EMA Group Ltd and SOS Intl in Copenhagen).

Oxygen is available on all routes operated by Finnair and in addition Norra flights operated by E90 (not ATR). 

The medical assistance groups arrange the service for the passengers who require extra oxygen onboard. These passengers are always escorted by a nurse/doctor from the medical group during flights.

A minimum of 48 hours advance notice is required.

NOTE: For safety reasons, consumption of oxygen from a first aid oxygen bottle on board is not permitted during take-off and landing unless the bottle is installed and secured with the approval of the airworthiness authorities.

Price of oxygen depends on the duration of the flight: 

  • 1 or 2 short-haul flights (within Europe + Israel): €400 

  • at least one long-haul (eg. BKK-HEL or BKK-HEL-OSL): €500
