Barrier-free travelling

Service for people with reduced mobility

Please let your travel agency or airline know that you have reduced mobility and need support already, when booking your journey. Thus the staff can come up to your wishes and needs best.

The support service is of course free of charge. However, it can only be booked with your travel agency or airline, not with the airport.

In order to ensure smooth running of procedures, airlines have to inform the airport and the handling agent in charge about a booked service not later than 36 hours before departure.

You can check in your wheelchair in advance for free or our staff will take it directly at the aircaft and store it in the plane. You will get it back after landing at your destination.
