Air travel can be both exciting and challenging, especially for individuals with mobility issues who rely on assistive devices like rollators.

The good news is that most airlines permit passengers to bring rollators on board. However, there are certain criteria and regulations that must be adhered to ensure compliance with safety standards and seamless travel.

  1. Check with the Airline: Before your journey, it’s crucial to check with the airline regarding their specific policies on bringing rollators aboard. While most airlines allow rollators, some may have size restrictions or require advance notice.
  2. Size and Weight Limits: Airlines typically have limitations on the size and weight of mobility aids. Make sure that your rollator meets the specified dimensions provided by the airline. If it exceeds the limit, you may need to check it in as baggage.
  3. Advance Notification: It’s advisable to inform the airline in advance if you plan to bring a rollator on board. This allows them to make necessary arrangements.
  4. Storage and Accessibility: Once onboard, flight attendants will assist you in stowing your rollator in the designated storage area. Ensure that any personal belongings or essential items are easily accessible during the flight.

Tips for Traveling with a Rollator:

  1. Arrive Early: Arriving at the airport well in advance of your flight allows time for check-in procedures and any necessary assistance.
  2. Labeling and Identification: Attach clear labels with your name and contact information to your rollator to prevent loss or confusion during transit.
  3. Practice Folding and Unfolding: Practice folding and unfolding your rollator.
  4. Communicate with the Crew: Don’t hesitate to communicate your needs and concerns with the flight crew. They are trained to assist passengers with disabilities and will ensure a comfortable journey.
