We have an ongoing commitment to passengers requiring special assistance. We work in partnership with Disability Cornwall who assist us in arranging consultation events for individuals and organisations to ensure our service and facilities remain fit for purpose for all users.
The last consultation event took place in April 2016 and the invaluable feedback received is currently being evaluated and an action plan formed. We will continue to host regular meetings to ensure our policy remains current and proactive to assist and support those passengers who need assistance with their journey through the Airport.
Please inform your travel agent or airline of any special assistance requirements when booking. If you would like any further information about the services we provide, please contact a member of our passenger services team on 01637 860600 or by email at [email protected].
