Special Assistance at Luton Airport

Hidden disabilties

Stickers are available for those travelling with a hidden or non physical disability to make them identifiable to staff. This will allow staff to recognise that the individual may need additional support, without them having to give details if they don’t wish to. These are espcially useful for those travelling with someone with autism or dementia for example.

Assistance Dogs

Guide and Hearing dogs are of course welcome, so long as they are registered with the Pet Travel Scheme and your airline are liceneced to have them on board. You should also contact Clece Care, Luton’s care provider by emailing them on prm-ltn@clececare.co.uk.
There's a special assistance service at Luton Airport for everyone
