It is advisable to think about where you may want to sit on your flight, to help suit your disability or medical needs. Choosing your seat prior to check-in can help your flight experience more comfortable for you & gives you that extra peace of mind!


  • If you require a little extra legroom or would like to be close to the toilets, most airlines will reserve your preferred seat at no extra charge.
  • Seats vary from being more spacious to having movable arm rests, however exit row seating is not an option due to safety restrictions.
  • Disability appropriate seating is usually found at the entry points of the aircraft, at the beginning of a cabin class, or an aisle seat with adjustable arm rests.
  • If you are unable to manoeuvre yourself into your seat, trained flight attends may be able to assist you with the use of a slide board.
  • You should also keep in mind not all planes have disabled toilets (an important consideration if you’re travelling on a long-haul flight)


To discuss what seating options might best suit your needs, please contact the airline you are travelling with for help & advice.
