2019 Top Mobility Scooters for Flying

Our airplane-friendly mobility scooters are the best on the market for traveling from one place to another.

These quality mobility scooters come equipped with special batteries that are TSA approved. The products are also lightweight, making them simple to transport.

These products, such as the Drive Medical Zoome Flex Auto Folding Scooter, the Jazzy Zero 8 Turn Scooter and the Solax Transformer Automatic Folding Scooter were built to make travel by air as simple and easy as possible.

It is important to keep in mind that when you take these travel mobility scooters to the airport, the airline is required to check them in free of charge; as well as providing free assistance to your gate.

TSA Approved Mobility Scooter

Mobility Scooters Direct supplies products that make our customers’ lives easier. A tip from our company for your next air travel is to arrive at least two hours before the flight departure.

Upon arrival at the airport, an employee should push you by wheelchair to the check-in area. At this point, the individual parts of the airplane-friendly mobility scooter should be removed, such as the batteries.

For the Zoome Flex, this means removing the TSA approved 25.9V 10AH lithium battery from the device. The 5 lbs. battery should be placed in a secure location within your luggage.


Another best practice is to put masking tape on the top of the throttle control. Placing tape here, with “do not remove” written in sharpie, will ensure that the throttle control is in the lowest position.

The Zoome Flex will be taken to the cargo hold as the person can be pushed by a wheelchair to security check and ultimately his or her gate.

The Zoome Flex by Pride Mobility is one of the best travel mobility scooters due to its lightweight design. The 4 wheel mobility scooter has a 300 lbs. weight capacity while it weighs a mere 60 lbs. including the battery.

The travel disability scooter comes equipped with a 24V 120W motor and reaches maximum speeds of 4 miles per hour.

Previous customers have called the Zoome Flex a long distance mobility scooter, considering its lightweight design, as the product reaches a 13 mile travel range per complete charge.

The affordable mobility scooter starts at around $3,000, which reflects a discount of about 15 percent from the manufacturer’s suggested retail price.
