Flight travel for the handicapped

Today we all tend to regard flying from one destination to another, as a quick form of transportation, which ensures independence, mobility and most of all a safe method of travel.

However, not all are at liberty to travel freely and herein lies the task of developing facilities, which will make travelling by air ensure a greater level of independence, mobility and security also to handicapped.

Many airports and Airline Companies endeavour to increase accessibility for handicapped.

Vagar Airport has been build to be handicap-friendly. There are handicap-toilets at airside and landside. There are no doorframes. Atlantic Airways has an handicap-lift at the disposal of passengers. 

Always check and confirm possible special-requests with the airline.
