Q: Is there any help I can ask for to  get to the airport?

Q: How can I  pre-arrange special assistance?

A: If you have a disability or you experience mobility difficulties and need help to get to your flight, you should contact your airline at least 48 hours before you fly to let them know you need assistance. It helps to give as much notice as possible for both the outward and return journey so we can organise the help you need.
