How to fly with your wheelchair, free of charge.

Notify your airline that you are travelling with a wheelchair. It will also be transported in the freight room, free of charge. If you have an electric wheelchair, you are required to disconnect the batteries from the motor.

How to ensure a smooth flying experience with your guide dog.

Are you travelling with your four-legged friend? Certified guide dogs must be registered with the airline. In general, they are allowed to travel with you in the cabin, free of charge. Your travel agent or the embassy in your destination country can provide more detailed information on the entry requirements for dogs.
