How to book special assistance

Assistance should be booked in advance with your airline or travel agent. This is so we have the right help and equipment ready for you.

If you have not pre-registered your need for assistance with your airline 48 hours in advance, you may have to wait some time for assistance as priority is always given to those passengers who we are expecting. If you arrive within one hour of your flight, we cannot guarantee you being afforded assistance to reach the aircraft, and you may be unable to travel.

Please follow these simple steps:
  • At the time of booking your flight or at least 48 hours in advance of travelling, please contact your airline directly or via your travel agent to book assistance.

  • You should also tell your airline if you intend to take your own mobility aid such as wheelchair or scooter.  Please provide details of the mobility scooter and how to isolate the power.
