If you require assistance at the airport due to disability or medical condition we are happy to arrange this on your behalf. Please contact us at least 48 hours before departure to let us know what assistance you require.
Some airports will have very long walking distances and may involve using stairs within the airport terminal as well as to access the plane. You may require assistance with your mobility or medical equipment or you may need an escort to help you navigate through the airport terminal.
On arrival at the airport, we ask that you make yourself known to airport staff. Passenger Assistance Points are signposted throughout the airport and are generally located within the car parks, taxi rank and bus stops, as well as within the departure area of the terminal. Alternatively, you can make our check-in staff aware of your requirements and they will contact the assistance company on your behalf or direct you to the designated area. Information regarding Passenger Assistance Points can be obtained by contacting the airport information line or by viewing their website.
We will always endeavour to support passengers with disabilities or reduced mobility whether travelling with us independently or with a companion/helper, however there are limits with regards to providing personal care.
Airport staff and Cabin Crew will assist passengers to bathroom facilities but are unable to provide any further personal care that may be required. If you feel you may need assistance within the bathroom cubicles or with any other personal care requirements, you will need to consider travelling with an escort.
Airline and airport staff is also limited in the assistance they are able to provide with regard to administering medical treatments and operating medical equipment. You may therefore need to travel with a companion if you require assistance that cannot be provided by airport or airline staff. Please contact us if you require more detailed information in relation to your particular requirements at least 48 hours before your journey.
All passengers are required to understand and follow the safety instructions provided by the airport and airline staff. With advanced notice we can ensure these instructions are provided in a way that is most suitable for you. A passenger will require an escort if they are unable to understand or follow safety instructions independently. Please contact us if you require further information.
We offer a call back service if you are unable to contact us by email, please provide your telephone number including the area code to the staff member who takes your call.
Contact us at least 48hrs before you travel to register your requirements or to make an enquiry.
