PARKAT launch disabled airport guide

Share Article

An advice guide aimed at helping disabled people travelling through airports has been produced by Parkat.



We have created this guide to help relieve some of the stress and worry for disabled people using airports

The guide covers a wide range of accessibility issues and concerns within airports which currently affect disabled travellers and also users with restricted mobility.

Unfamiliar environments, such as busy airports, can be a daunting experience for anyone who is restricted by a disability. This can make simple tasks, such as stowing luggage and boarding the aircraft extremely problematic.

The guide has been produced by airport parking company Parkat.

The guide includes common worries and frequently asked questions:

    What happens at security and customs?
    General airport assistance
    Advice before you travel
    Return journey help
    Travelling with autism
    Travelling with medication
    Travelling with kidney disease
    Breathing related mobility restrictions
    Visual impairments
    Deaf or hearing impaired
    Assistance at the car park
    Wheelchair advice
    Assistance pets
    Tips and advice

Matthew Lobas comments:

“We have created this guide to help relieve some of the stress and worry for disabled people using airports. We regularly get emails about wheelchair access and other related questions therefore it made sense to collate all this information and to produce an easily accessible document which contains everything. The aim is to help everyone regardless of their needs to travel comfortably.”

The free guide is available from the Parkat website in PDF and text format.
