Preparing your journey
Arriving in Paris by air. How to find information on accessible airports, assistance when you arrive and adapted transfers between the airport and the city centre?
In recent years, travelling by plane has become considerably easier for disabled people, but despite the air network’s efforts for heightened accessibility, there is nothing to guarantee that all the services you require will be offered everywhere.
Whatever the journey, it is unfortunately still necessary to organize it well in advance. Careful planning and the use of technology will help to facilitate your journey.
Before you go:
Indicate your requirements for assistance at least 48 hours in advance.
|Canadian air transport guide for disabled people
You must inform your airline company and travel company of your requirements as soon as you book your flight and at least 48 hours before departure in order to limit your waiting time and receive a better quality of service.
Think about what you need in terms of medical papers!
As a disabled person you do not need a health certificate to travel unless you are suffering from an illness, have a progressive disability or have recently undergone an operation. Beforehand, where applicable, ensure that you have had an INCAD (Incapacitated Passenger Handling Advice) form filled out by your doctor. Regular travellers can benefit from the FREMEC (Frequent Traveller Medical) card.
NB : Transportation of your wheelchair and guide dog is free.
