Airline and Airport Safety Issues

New FAA Security / Airline Safety

To meet new FAA airline security measures, an individual in need of carrying an EpiPen(TM) or other medical syringe, should carry a letter from their physician stating the medical need.

We suggest the letter contain the following:

  • Your name and gender
  • Your date of birth
  • Your address
  • Explanation of medical need

This letter should be signed by your physician and written on his/her letterhead.

A sample of this type of letter can be found on the website of the Food Allergy Network ( FAAN) at:

www.foodallergy.org/

For further information see the website of the FAA at:

www.faa.gov

 

NOTE: Airport Security may be wearing Latex Gloves

We recommend contacting your Airport Security and /or Your

Airline for further information.
