Travellers with a disability
Travelers with disabilities are guaranteed the same comfort and rights at the airport and on the flight as all other passengers.
Moreover, an EU regulation (1107/2006) obliges all airports in Europe to offer help to "Persons with reduced mobility (PRM)". However, there are certain rules for disabled passengers. Persons with disabilities who require assistance should, for example, notify the airline or travel agency prior to the travel. This will be necessary when the disabled person needs assistance through the airport and on the flight. All the necessary information can be found under each category displayed below.
- Order assistance
- Bus, car parking
- Further information
- Parking lot
1. The request for assistance is made simultaneously with the purchase of ticket through the airline or travel agency.
Remember! Assistance is available through the airline or travel agency when purchasing the ticket. The airport will be informed of the circumstances, automatically.
Remember! Assistance must be booked at least 48 hours before departure.
It's specially trained staff from Aalborg Airport, who provide assistance all the way through the airport including the boarding. Inform the airline/travel agency, if there is a need for:
- Assistance through check-in
- Assistance through security
- Assistance with boarding and when you again need to disembark upon return
- Own wheelchair, (electric or collapsible)
- Your own certified service dog
It is possible for a personal assistance to gain access to the departure hall. If wanted the assistant must contact the airport office.
Access through security is the same as for other airport travellers. It is of course possible to get additional assistance through the security area.
