EU Regulation 1107/2006 transferring responsibility of passengers with reduced mobility from airlines to airports came into effect on Saturday 26th July, 2008.
At each airport the Airport Authority or an appointed handling partner will be responsible for passengers requiring special assistance. There must be a smooth and easy transit for the passenger through all areas of the airport.
In order for the Airport Authority or handling partner to provide the best service possible and ensure the customer’s needs are met, it is important that we are advised of those requirements, where possible, 48 hours in advance of travel.
Customers can call the Aer Lingus reservations centre on the numbers below who will record all details of the passenger’s requirements
08:00 - 18:30 Mon-Fri
09:00 - 17:00 Sat-Sun & Bank Holidays
Guidelines for Customers:
It is our policy to accept wheelchair customers. We ask that customers advise us their level of disability prior to travel as due to aircraft restrictions we may be limited in the amount of wheelchair customers we can accept per flight.
Passengers travelling with their own wheelchairs
Passengers travelling with their own wheelchairs are permitted to do so free of charge but Aer Lingus must be informed if they are battery operated. All passengers who are wheelchair bound must contact Aer Lingus Special Assistance Department to request appropriate support from the departure and arrival airports.
Passengers are required to provide a minimum of 48 hours notice of their intention to travel.
Note: Passengers are not permitted to check-in or carry on-board any wet-cell batteries either in wheelchairs or as stand-alone batteries
Guidelines for customers travelling with their own wheelchair or mobility device
Customers travelling with their own wheelchair must contact Aer Lingus reservations in advance of their flight. Please contact Aer Lingus reservations at the time of making the booking or notify us later, but at least 48hours before the flight.
