Air travel for a disabled person can be difficult, and daunting, but with the right information and planning it can be done. Here are my tips to help your flight go smoothly, so all you have to worry about is enjoying your holiday!

 

Mobility Equipment

If you need to travel with mobility equipment, especially a power wheelchair, do check that the airline can accept the weight, dimensions and batteries. Most airlines carry these items free of charge; if you’re travelling to or from the EU two pieces of equipment are carried with no extra cost.

If your equipment is valuable, make sure you have insurance cover for travel, and speak to your supplier to ask the best way to protect it during the flight. Remove any detachable parts, and take these on board with you.
