Your Video Guides to Flying with a Hidden Disability
In partnership with the UK Civil Aviation Authority we have produced 4 short films that give information and insights about travelling by air with a hidden disability and the support available. We follow Ifraa, Michael, Paul and Penny and Claire and Sandy through their journeys, highlighting what’s involved and including useful links to more information you may need.
Our films below provide vital information for people travelling with a stoma, aphasia, dementia and autism.
Ifraa talks about her experiences of flying with a stoma and the steps she puts in place to make sure she can fly in comfort.
