Right, it always depends on the aircraft. Which route are you flying?

If you get the refurbished A330, there will be electric outlets, otherwise, no. (I also don't remember if it's 110 or 240V). Unfortunately there is no way of knowing which aircraft you will get ahead of time. You might want to look at other airlines if that's considered essential.

Did you buy through their website? If you check your confirmation and flight details, it should say what plane and the seat map where you choose your seat should give you an indication what the configuration is.

Check with them to see if they will let you use your CPAP machine.

Air Canada doesn't let you use them in board unless they are battery powered. You can't plug them into the outlets. Might want to double check with the airline you're flying

It doesn't say :(.
Tried to call several times, but it's always busy.

from google search it can be Airbus A330-343 (A333) or Airbus A330-223 (A332).

Air Canada doesn't allowed?! Ridiculous! This can be life threatening and AFAIK there is no battery powered CPAP machine (or maybe they are very bad).
In this case, half plane won't be sleeping because of my "musical" snoring :)

In any case, I'll take machine to the plane and need to fill out 5-7 whiskey sample bottles with distilled water as I can bring liquids only 50ml or less

Passengers who need to travel with a POC or CPAP machine (for treatment of sleep apnea) can carry them on board TAP flights.

However, they must contact the TAP Contact Center to find out about the specific conditions for their flight.



Most airline will allow you to bring CPAP machines on board and but only some will allow to plug into the 110V socket. Most CPAP models have a optional or 3rd party battery you can buy.

Based on today's flight, it looks like currently they are using a 332, but that may change for your date. Also are you flying Business? Cause it looks like 110V socket is not available in economy, based on what I see on Seatguru.

No, economy. I've read that some planes have individual 110V in business and shared (per row) in economy, but I'm not sure
