Flying for a holiday this summer? Flying with Hearing Aids is easier than you may think. Make your holiday run even smoother by following this simple guide.
Flying with Hearing Aids
When boarding the plane, unless otherwise stated in the description of your hearing aid, it is safe to keep it on. Some people, though, prefer to turn it off in order to avoid the background noise on board. You will not be required to turn it off while taking off and landing as it is not considered a personal electronic device and is not classified in the same category as MP3 players, iPods, laptops, mobile phones, smartphones, etc. Nevertheless, it is good to know what features the hearing aid has. For example, if it features an FM system, you will need to switch it off.
If you are traveling to a hot and humid place, do not forget to pack a hearing aid dehumidifier in your luggage. Moisture can be detrimental to your hearing aid and may prevent it from functioning properly. Depending on your destination, you may not be able to find a specialist to fix it or service may be expensive, so it is best to pack all you need for your hearing aid maintenance in advance.
