But what awaits you at the airport?
In this short piece I've tried to include some useful links that may make your life a little easier if you're travelling with a disability.
Not to say that everything will be rosy, but just to let you know what the airports say about themselves in terms of access. It's probably best to look for information about PRM services / Special Assistance / Airport Assistance or similar links on airport websites. The airports usually ask for advanced notice of travel, and if you do this it can help them to put assistance in place should you need it.
Here is the latest access information from some of Britain's busiest airports which you might be using this summer - just click on each link to go directly to the information:
Heathrow; Gatwick; Manchester; Stansted; Birmingham; Glasgow; Edinburgh; Luton; Belfast International; Bristol; Aberdeen; I do hope this will help you to plan your journeys?
What happens if things go wrong? Well first of all address your complaint to the airport, and if you are not satisfied with the response, please contact the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) who are responsible for answering complaints in Britain.
