Hidden Disability Scheme at UK Airports

Hidden Disability Scheme at UK Airports

Postby member_41389 » Thu Oct 18, 2018 8:28 pm

At the Bristol Support Group last night the Hidden Disability Scheme run by UK airports was mentionned. I was asked to post some information about it as I have used the scheme twice when flying from Bristol and certainly found it helped in lowering stress.

The basis of the scheme is driven by the CAA requiring all UK airports to improve provision for those travelling with a "disability". The following report https://www.caa.co.uk/cap1629 basically gives a summary of the state of play.

For Bristol Airport the following page is helpful, an equivalent should be available for any UK airport. https://www.bristolairport.co.uk/at-the-airport/special-assistance/other-advice

All the best

I have used the scheme a few times and it either works fantastically or horribly; normally it works really well, but sometimes there are long delays getting off aircraft. But, it is way way better than the British Rail system which from my limited use, barely functions.
