  • Our customers with a mobility impairment so severe that the person is unable to physically assist in his or her own evacuation from the aircraft in case of an emergency.
  • Our customers with severe hearing, vision and speech impairment  – who cannot establish any means of communication with the cabin crew that is adequate both to allow transmission of the safety briefing and to enable the customer to assist in his or her own evacuation from the aircraft in the event of an emergency.

The safety assistant shall be at least eighteen (18) years old, physically and mentally able and willing to evacuate a customer with disability in case of an emergency.

For our customers requiring a Portable Oxygen Concentrator (POC), only the ones approved by Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and IndiGo’s Engineering team is permitted on board IndiGo flights either as checked-in or hand baggage,  subject to following conditions being met:

 

  • A request for carriage or use of POC on board should be intimated to IndiGo a minimum of forty eight (48) hours prior to the scheduled departure time. Only lithium battery powered POCs are allowed on board our aircraft.
  • The POC should not cause any interference with the electrical, navigation or communication equipment on board

  • IndiGo, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to refuse carriage of POC, if it is likely to endanger the safety of the aircraft or of any person.
  • For safety purposes, please ensure that the POC prior to check-in is empty and free of pressure. Thus, if POC was used before coming to the airport, then the customer must reset the POC to avoid any residual oxygen in the equipment;
  • The lithium battery attached to the POC  should be removed and carried by the customer as hand baggage.

  • During an unlikely event of decompression (in case of decrease in cabin pressure), you must wear the oxygen mask from the overhead panel as a primary source of oxygen and not the POC, since the oxygen mask would ensure a continuous flow of oxygen and would also minimize the chance/ effects of  post decompression sickness.
