Since 2008, all airports have a special assistance service for people who use wheelchairs. This service is completely free but, just in case, we recommend you to check the policy of each airline before travelling.

  • Learn about secutiry controls
  • Ask for the help to the airport staff – they’re always available to answer your queries
  • Inform about the cost of extra services
  • Ask about the cost for different types of wheelchairs
  • Remember that no one without a borading pass can get on the plane, so if you travel with a family member to help you, you must notify the airline.
