My walking ability is severely limited due to osteo arthritis of the hip. My wife and I would like to travel from Man airport T1 but the particular flight always leaves from the furthest point from the departure lounge. I do not use a wheel chair but is anyone aware from experience of any form of transport provided to do that journey and if so whom to contact. Many thanks

Have a look at this,
Thanks, thats helpful.
My wife has severe OA of her hips & knees & is severely disabled as far as walking is concerned. When we travel (my wife is American so we travel to the US on a regular basis) we always contact the airline & ask for help such as wheelchairs, & access to the aircraft. We have always had good service from the airlines & airport staff no matter which airports we travel from & to.
So, your best bet is get in touch with the airline & ask them about disability help.
Hope that helps.
Thanks, I will try the airline
I always use a wheelchair through airports. You might find that when you book they ask whether you need special assistance.
If not, I have asked at the check in desk when i arrived at the air port and asked them to check how many people with disabilities they have on board.The air line did not like this lack of notice and could not guarantee me assistance - however they came up with the goods. I think they are supposed to have room for at least four passengers who require assistance. You could also request being lifted into the plane via the ambilift. It's great fun and means avoiding the pain of climbing the steps. Make sure you book for both sides at the outset. Enjoy!!
Thanks,looks like being the way to deal with it.
