If you require wheelchair access, please call 01302 802077 to discuss your needs BEFORE booking. In each case, every wheelchair user should be accompanied by a responsible paying adult as part of their party. This is to comply with Health & Safety regulations when live-side on an active airport.

In the event of failure to produce valid documents, refusal of admission to air-side will result. We have no control over this.)
