Today’s airports offer facilities for passengers with reduced mobility. Information on the assistance available is generally found on the website of the airport concerned. You may also request information directly from the airport administration.
Contact the Air Dolomiti Sales Center when making your reservation to request the assistance suited to your needs at least 48 hours before departure.
Requests for special assistance include:
• arranging for assistance at the airport when embarking, disembarking and/or in transit
• bringing your own wheelchair (manual or electric) and/or using the wheelchair in the cabin
• bringing special medical equipment
• bringing an assistance dog into the cabin
Once on board, passengers with limited mobility will be seated by personnel where the crew’s instructions can be seen and heard for the entire duration of the flight.
Disability and/or restraint aids that require to be secured around the back of the seat are not accepted on board Air Dolomiti flights.
Please contact Air Dolomiti Sales Center with any requests to travel with passenger mobility aids, which must be notified at the time of booking and/or checked for compatibility.
Please contact us at the time of booking your flight if you wish to travel with your own wheelchair. This can be embarked directly at the check-in counter on the day of the flight, tagged and stored in the hold. Carriage is free of charge. Personal wheelchairs must fold flat; chairs powered by a liquid battery will not be accepted. The maximum size of wheelchair allowed is: 120 x 101 x 71 cm, and the weight must not exceed 80 kg.
If your wheelchair is battery-powered, please find out what type of batteries it takes and inform our Sales Center when you book your flight or at least within 48 hours before departure. Depending on the battery type, wheelchairs are subject to certain transport requirements. You could be requested to provide the technical data sheet of the mobility aid.
Wheelchairs powered by wet-cell batteries are not accepted on board of Air Dolomiti flights.
If necessary, we can provide free assistance to go from the check-in desk to the aircraft steps, to climb the aircraft steps or to reach a seat in the cabin. The wheelchair will be provided by the airport.
Assistance dogs for those with hearing or visual impairments or other recognized needs for passengers with reduced mobility are carried free of charge.
The service must be requested when making the reservation. It is not necessary for the dog to be kept in a pet carrier during the flight, but a leash and muzzle are recommended. During take-off, landing and in the instance of turbulence, the animal must be fitted with a suitable safety harness (this must be provided by the owner) to allow the dog to safely remain next to the passenger accompanying it.
The dog must fit in the footspace of the owner’s seat: if the dog is too big to fit in front of the seat, the passenger may be offloaded or acceptance may be refused.
Since the number of animals that can be carried in the cabin is limited, please notify us promptly if you will be travelling with an assistance dog.
Please note that some countries have special provisions for the entry of animals. You are therefore advised to make inquiries well in advance.
For some illnesses or disabilities (such as heart or lung conditions, strokes, etc.), injuries from accidents or chronic pain, fitness for air travel must be assessed by the Air Dolomiti Medical Service.
If there are doubts as to whether it is safe for you to fly, you or your doctor must apply in advance for an Air Dolomiti health assessment. A decision must be taken at least 48 hours before departure.
