Travelling alone can be a challenge. Fortunately, having a disability does not mean that getting to and from your gate will be a struggle. One shouldn’t be discouraged from requesting a wheelchair because someone may perceive you are faking a disability. Here is a guide to requesting a wheelchair at the airport to assist you to the gate in a timely manner. When travelling with your own wheelchair, there are some things you need to know before you board. Check out this guide from Wheelchairtravel.org.
Not all disabilities are visible
Just remember, when you see someone getting pushed to the gate and they get up and walk onto the plane, doesn’t mean that they do not need that accommodation. Not all disabilities are visible.
