Air travel if you are blind, visually impaired, deaf or hearing impaired

  • When you travel by air, always let your airline know if you need any extra help at the airport or on the plane.
  • Ask for any help you require, at least 48 hours before you fly so there is time to organise the support you need.
  • Please request further assistance such as being allocated appropriate seats.
  • If you are unable to travel without assistance you will need to travel with a carer who must purchase a ticket.
  • The assistance that Airlines can offer customers with sensory impairments can include: Braille cards on flights, individual safety briefings & assistance during the flight.
