PRIOR TO ARRIVAL

To assist in the provision of the best service available, passengers are asked to advise the airline or travel agent when making a flight booking of any disability or assistance required at the airport. The airline or travel agent can then make any necessary arrangements, for example book a wheelchair or reserve a specific seating requirement for a guide dog.

It is also important to check if medical clearance is required by the airline for your specific circumstances.

Each airline has different guidelines on carriage of people with reduced mobility and requirements for special assistance.  BAC recommends you speak to your airline in advance and at the time of booking.

If you will require staff assistance on departure or arrival, this will need to be pre-arranged.  Please always arrive with plenty of time prior to your flight departure.  Your airline will advise you of the correct check-in time requirements.
