ADA: Wheelchair Service at Airports

The Americans for Disabilities Act requires airlines to provide wheelchair escorts for people with disabilities.

If you are traveling by air and you cannot manage the long walk from the front door to the gate, ask the airline to schedule a wheelchair escort for you. Whether you have a permanent disability or a temporary one, due to a broken leg or recent surgery (a friend’s daughter used this service to fly home after a Cesarean birth), an escort will meet you at the door to the airport, take you through check-in, baggage, and security and wheel you right to the door of the plane where other assistance and devices such as an aisle chair are available if needed. Upon landing, an escort will meet you at the plane and wheel you to the front door and wait with you until your ride arrives. Ask about this service when booking your flight.
