Suggestions for Preventing Damage to Powerchairs

Hello
I’m a quad 5-6 incomplete flying to New York from Sacramento on jet blue. My chair is a motorized quantum edge . I plan to remove head rest and cushion. Is there any suggestions to make sure it arrives safely. Thanks for your information. Leaving October 6.

Hi @deviss.

NOTE: I took your post from the “Introduce Yourself” Topic and created a new Topic for your post inside the “Air Travel” Category.

You should call the airline and instruct them on…

a) How it needs to be stowed (must it stay in the upright position? for example)
b) What the dimensions and weight of you chair are

While airlines are liable for any damage to your power chair, I think you would rather avoid having to deal with that.

Here are some great tips from John Morris via this AbleThrive article:

Hope you enjoy your travels
