Medical devices such as crutches can be brought onboard an airplane. However, their transportation must be reported in advance.
The space at Košice airport is designed to be barrier-free, starting with the parking lot, where three parking spaces for disabled people are marked near the P2 building. The access from the parking lot to the building and to the exit to the aircraft is also designed to be accessible. The specially adapted toilets are visibly marked, and wheelchairs are available for passengers, which can be provided by the airport staff upon request.
In the event that a passenger needs to use the services of airport staff, this must be reported no later than 48 hours before the scheduled departure to the airline, either through the website (at the time of booking the ticket) or through the call center, or by notifying the travel agency.
Upon arrival at Košice airport, such a passenger contacts the check-in staff who will assist them with all formalities at the airport until boarding. Upon request and after checking in, the staff will provide a free chair for such a passenger, which will accompany them all the way to the aircraft.
