Visually impaired passengers

We're here if you need us to assist you on your journey.

This page tells you about the types of assistance available to you (both in the airport and on the plane) if you are visually impaired.

If you’re blind or visually impaired, our Special Assistance team and cabin crews are on hand to help you with anything you might need on your journey.

Escorted travel

If you’re travelling alone, the Special Assistance team can organise for you to be escorted through the airport and pre-boarded before other passengers. If you would like this service; you will need to let the team know at least 48 hours before your flight.
