Just wanted to give a pat on the back to Easyjet!
I recently flew to Inverness with my elderly mother and used their assisted travel service. The service was first class; the staff were mega-friendly and nothing was too much trouble. You can choose the level of assistance you require when you book online – we just needed help to and from the departure gate rather than assistance into the aircraft. They provide either a wheelchair or a buggy or a combination of the two and at least one person from your group can accompany the assisted passenger if they wish. The group also automatically gets priority boarding – so no long queue!
So if you’re a little nervous about travelling to us with an elderly or disabled relative be reassured that the airline journey won’t be a trial.
