On arrival, you will be met by our staff with an airport wheelchair or your own chair upon request. Where applicable, they will assist you through Customs and Immigration and help with retrieval of your baggage in the arrivals area.
If you choose, your wheelchair may be checked-in and you will be provided with an airport wheelchair and assisted by staff to get to your aircraft seat. You may choose to remain in your own wheelchair until you reach the door of the aircraft. Your chair will be tagged at check-in and taken to the baggage hold from the aircraft door.
Hi M.! Unfortunately, at the moment, I don’t believe any airlines used the Air Access wheelchair. It was recently introduced as a “proof of concept” by a design company that specializes in transportation technology. Perhaps, when enough people write to airline CEOs to make them aware of this game-changing wheelchair and the difference it would make in the lives of thousands, they’ll take notice and begin incorporating them into their aircraft. Thanks for following our blog!
