Special needs when you fly

Flygplan i luften, sett underifrån mot blå himmel. FotografiYou’ll find important information here for people who have special needs when flying – for instance, if you have a functional impairment and require escort assistance, if you have an allergy or are afraid of flying.

We at Swedavia want everyone to be able to fly. Therefore you can get extra assistance at the airport – so you can feel as safe and secure as possible. You can read more here about how escort assistance works and how to book, pack medicine, check in mobility aids and travel with an assistance dog, for instance. You can also read about how it works when your child travels unaccompanied and also get some tips if you are afraid of flying.  

There is also information available for people with impaired vision or hearing who would like to know more about how things work at airports and on board the aircraft – so you can best plan your trip. 

We hope this information will help make it easy and convenient for you to plan and carry out your journey.

Mention your needs when you book your flight

It is a good idea to mention that you have special needs when you book your flight and try to describe what you need help with. The earlier you inform us, the better prepared staff will be to assist you – both at the airport and on board the aircraft.
