MyWay is a personalized support service for disabled passengers travelling in a EU member state. It provides mobility lifts, escalators and moving walkways, elevators, appropriate signage and guidance and qualified professionals providing full assistance.
Who is eligible?
Any person with a disability or reduced mobility who intends to use commercial passenger services, departing, arriving or stopping over at na Airport situated in the territory of a Member State to which the Treaty applies.
How to pre-book?
The MyWay service should be pre-booked with the air carrier or its agent when reserving the journey, up to 48 hours before the published departure time for the flight. This information is immediately transmitted to the airports involved which will provide the necessary assistance.
What type of assistance is provided?
When arriving at the airport, passangers should look for signs indicating what we call the Designated Point of Arrival, Here, passengers should inform the MyWay Service of their arrival at the Airport, using the telephone provided for this purpose.
Passenger will then be assisted to their seat on the aircraft, where the Airport’s responsibility ends. During this time they are entitled to personal assistance and assistance with luggage: at the check-in, security controls, border controls and on boarding.
For arriving passengers, the air carrier or it’s agent should notify the Airport of the need to provide the MyWay service. Passengers are thus provided assistance from their seat on the aircraft to the Designated Point of Departure in the Arrivals Area of the Airport, where the Airport’s responsibility ends. During this time they are entitled to personal assistance and assistance with luggage.
