Booking stage

If you require additional assistance either within the airport or on the flight, then you should notify your travel agent or the airline direct. The more notice the better but at least 48 hrs before departure should ensure they allocate someone to help. 

Contact the airports special assistance team and advise them of your arrival time should you need assistance into the terminal.
