Medical equipment and medication

If you or someone you care about uses medical equipment or medication during or after their flight, you'll find all you need to know right here. We strongly recommend that you review the following well in advance of when you intend to travel, and check back before your day of travel, as this information is updated regularly. 

We recommend that whenever your medical equipment fits within the carry-on baggage dimensions you take it as carry-on baggage. Medication should be packed in your personal item.  Although we do not charge a fee for medical equipment, most portable medical devices (PMEDs) must be approved for air travel as they contain batteries which are classified as dangerous goods. Please review the Medical equipment and medication page well in advance of when you intend to travel to be sure these items arrive safely.


At WestJet, we care about your baggage too. From what to pack to how you can pack it, you'll find all you need to know right here.
