Check out the airline websites - the main airlines have a huge amount of info about what they can do to help and what's allowed. For example virgin-atlantic.com/gb/en/travel-information… but note

Bringing your own oxygen onboard

Oxygen cylinders are classed as dangerous goods, so for safety reasons you cannot bring your own onboard.

Empty cylinders may be carried in your check in baggage, and you can use a portable oxygen concentrator onboard – but please make sure you let our Special Assistance team know you intend to bring it. See our information on medical equipment for more details.
