Bringing your crutches, walker, or cane on board is free of charge and can be done without reservation. We do not offer special assistance in case of fear of flying.
Arrange your own safety assistant or traveling companion
If you are traveling alone and you cannot evacuate independently in the unlikely event of an emergency, it is necessary to arrange a safety assistant who can assist you. You can either arrange it yourself or ask the staff at the airport to assist you with the matter. Without a safety assistant to assist you during your flight, boarding will be refused.
If you require help while administrating your medication, making use of the toilet, or eating, you need to arrange your own traveling companion to assist you during your flight. In these cases, we do not offer special assistance.
