Welcome to UK Wheelchairs - the home of value and quality

International flight for wheelchair users

A friend recently travelled to Australasia taking his wheelchair with him and was very impressed with the help and service he received from Air New Zealand. They seem to cater for wheelchair users and their travelling companions better than most airlines and provide a range of graded packages to match your dependence on your wheelchair, ranging from total dependence on your wheelchair for mobility to wheelchair use for long distances only plus your requirements for transfer to the seat.

It would be good to think that other airlines could get as accommodating when it comes to booking options for people with wheelchairs. They also publish some excellent material on their services for wheelchair users and seem to have a very well organised policy for those who would require assistance in the case of an emergency.

Using SSR codes, that is Special Service Requests they seem to have move eventualities covered and certainly make wheelchair users feel very welcome. Although all airlines use these codes to help identify just what level of assistance you require Air New Zealand seem to provide the most detailed service including catering for electric wheelchairs although they do point out that powerchairs that do not fold cannot always be accommodated on certain smaller aircraft types.
