DISABLED PASSENGERS AND PASSENGERS WITH REDUCED MOBILITY
From the perspective of a smooth flight it is very important that already when booking the flight the airline would get the information regarding the special needs of the passenger both during the flight as well as in the airports to be visited. Inform the airline in time in case:

Airlines have different rules regarding the weight of the wheelchairs to be accepted on board, therefore you should ask for additional information from your airline beforehand.
In case you need an oxygen device, please inform the airline in time regarding the type of the used device. Most of the airlines accept on the flight devices that the passenger can use during the flight.
In case you plan to fly with various airlines and types of planes, then already when booking the flights try to find out whether the devices, batteries and other equipment that you use are accepted by all the airlines whose services you are planning to use.
