Wheelchairs or Sky Caps
For wheelchair or porter service, please contact your airline in advance.

Individuals assisting passengers with disabilities are allowed beyond the screener checkpoints. These individuals may be required to present themselves at the airlines' check-in desk and receive a "pass" allowing them to go through the screener checkpoint without a ticket.
Passengers with disabilities may receive assistance from airline personnel, who will escort them to the gate. Those needing help should make a request at the airline ticket counter.
Ticketed passengers with their own oxygen for use on the ground are allowed beyond the screener checkpoints with their oxygen canisters once the canisters have been thoroughly inspected.
All persons allowed beyond the screener checkpoints may be searched. This will usually be done through the use of a hand-held metal detector, whenever possible. Passengers may also be patted down during security screenings, and this is even more likely if the passenger uses a wheelchair and is unable to stand up. A private screening will be provided upon request.
Service animals, once inspected to ensure prohibited items are not concealed, are permitted on board an aircraft. Any backpack or sidepack that is carried on the animal will be manually inspected or put through the X-ray machines.
Assistive devices such as walking canes, once inspected to ensure prohibited items are not concealed, are permitted on board an aircraft. Assistive devices such as augmentative communication devices will go through the same kind of security screening process used for personal computers.
Syringes are permitted on board an aircraft once it is determined that the person has a documented medical need for the syringe.
