Passengers with restricted mobility

Airport wheelchairs
Wheelchairs are available at all airport locations, and we can assist you with transportation from the terminal entrance (or a vehicle drop-off point adjacent to the entrance) to the boarding gate, making connections (if applicable), and transportation from the aircraft to the terminal entrance (or a vehicle pick-up point adjacent to the entrance) at your destination.

Traveling with your own wheelchair or assistive device
HI Flying Air Ambulance International helps with motorised and non-motorised wheelchairs and assistive devices for transport. However, there are some restrictions on size and weight that you should discuss with us at the time of booking.
We  get permissions for storage of one passenger's collapsible, manual wheelchair in the aircraft cabin of the Airlines. If you wish to take your own wheelchair to the gate, you must arrive at the gate at least 60 minutes prior to departure. Wheelchairs or assistive devices that are too large or heavy to be accommodated in the aircraft cabin will be carried in the checkin section of the airlines.
Non-collapsible wheelchairs, electric wheelchairs, and power scooters are accepted as checked baggage. These items can be checked at the main check-in counter.
If you travel with a battery-powered wheelchair or other mobility aid, certain safeguards must be taken before you travel. Please provide us with at least 48 hours advance notice of your requirement and advise us of the dimensions and weight, and the type of battery used for your equipment. Also, we need to check in at the airport at least one hour ahead of scheduled check-in time so that we can ensure that your equipment is transported in accordance with all dangerous goods handling requirements. 

When necessary, we will disassemble and reassemble wheelchairs or assistive devices for customers when they travel. If we do need to disassemble your wheelchair, we will need instructions: please bring the manufacturer’s instructions with you to the airport. You will be asked to check the wheelchair at the check-in area and you will need to be present during the disassembly/reassembly of the device. 
Medical equipment and up to two assistive devices which are approved for transportation in cabin do not count towards the number of carry-on baggage a passenger is allowed free of charge.
Canes/crutches must be stowed under your seat prior to take-off and landing. The cane or crutches must lie flat on the floor and should not block emergency exits or protrude into the aisle.

We are responsible for traveling with a sufficient supply of batteries to last the entire journey, including transit and unexpected delays. The device may be plugged into the aircraft's in-seat plug; the power specifications may vary on different aircraft. 

We take care that the device will not obstruct access to a seat row or block an Aisle. When not in use the device must be stowed in an approved stowage location, so it does not block the aisle or entryway into the row. Batteries for CPAP/PAP machines carried on board the aircraft in carry-on baggage must be preserved from short circuit and should be packaged in a manner that protects them from physical damage. Batteries protected from short circuit include:

those designed with recessed battery terminals; or
those packaged so that the battery terminals do not contact metal objects, including the battery terminals of other batteries.
If CPAP/PAP devices are carried on board an aircraft as carry-on baggage but are not intended to be used during the flight, the batteries must be removed and packaged separately, unless the device contains at least two useful protective features to prevent accidental operation during transport.
