Malta & Gozo: For clients who will be travelling with a wheelchair, specialist transfers are required at a cost and available on request.
Most airlines accept electronically-powered wheelchairs, providing that the outlined conditions are met. Since batteries needed to power the wheelchairs remain attached, it is important that the wheelchair remains in an upright position when collapsed. Batteries must be disconnected and the terminals insulated to prevent accidental shorting. We recommend that passengers have insurance cover for the full replacement value of their wheelchair. Wheelchair dimensions greater than normal must be disclosed before booking.
A companion or escort must travel with any traveller who is not ‘self-reliant’. Self-reliant travellers should be independent as follows:
Breathing: should not be reliant on supplementary oxygen.
Food: should be capable of feeding themselves. Cabin crew should assist with opening food containers and describing catering arrangements to blind people.
Lifting: should be capable of moving from a passenger seat to an on-board wheelchair or transferring to their transport locally.
Communication: should be able to communicate and understand guidance.
Toilets: should be able to use toilet facilities unaided.
Medication: should be capable of managing their medical procedures.
If a passenger does not meet all of the above categories, a companion or escort is required for travel and must be included in the reservation at the time of booking. Due to CAA regulations, any persons with reduced mobility or any physical disability or intellectual impairment cannot be allocated seats next to exits.
Airline handling & medical forms
If you have any medical needs, the airline may ask you to complete an Incapacitated Passengers Handling Advice (INCAD) form and/or a Medical Information Form (MEDIF). These are standard forms used by many airlines to help staff organise any assistance or equipment you may need during your journey and to decide whether you are fit to fly. With some airlines, the INCAD and MEDIF are two parts of the same form. You can fill in the INCAD form yourself, but the MEDIF form must be completed by your doctor. Most people do not have to fill in the MEDIF form or apply for medical clearance to fly through any other procedure the airline may have. This includes people who have stable, long-term disabilities and medical conditions. You should contact the airline and discuss your disability or medical condition with them – even if your doctor says you are fit to fly – as different airlines have different policies about carrying disabled passengers and people with medical conditions. We will endeavour to answer any questions you may have regarding special assistance or to obtaining any forms.
