Further information about Gatwick Airport

As you’d expect from an airport its size, Gatwick looks after passengers needing special assistance very well. Both terminals offer, among other facilities, ramps, height-accessible phones, wheelchairs and disabled loos.

Meanwhile, a lanyard scheme lets staff know discreetly that you have a hidden disability such as dementia or autism. Further special assistance is available while waiting or moving through the airport, for example with specific waiting areas, while Gatwick was the first UK airport to have a sensory room to help calm passengers feeling overwhelmed by their surroundings.

As always, plan your journey before you fly.
