Flying can be a stressful experience. This feeling is intensified if you have specific requirements, such as health issues, limited mobility, disability, pregnancy, or travelling with small children. We have compiled some information for you to allay any anxiety you may have, so you can enjoy your flight and holiday whatever your circumstances.
For a pleasant flight and holiday, it is essential that you make advance preparations to ensure that your plans go as smoothly as possible:
If your mobility is limited or if you are a wheelchair user, you may need some assistance to get around the airport and to get on and off the plane. Take a look at our Disability Assistance page to see what your airline and Tenerife South Airport can do to help at the airport and when boarding your flight.
If you have a medical condition you will need to check your airline’s specific requirements for passengers with medical conditions. Passengers who have recently had surgery or medical procedures need to check that their travel insurance policy will cover their specific needs and the airline they are travelling on will allow them to fly. In some circumstances a Fit to Fly Form will need to be filled in by your Doctor, Consultant or GP before you travel. You can find more detailed information on our page Flying with a Medical Condition.
If you are travelling when pregnant you will need to be aware of your airline’s requirements and restrictions for mums-to-be. On our page Flying when Pregnant, we have summarised the specifications of some major airlines and compiled tips and advice from various sources, which you may find useful.
Flying with a baby or toddler can have its very own challenges and can be a scary prospect – particularly the first time around. However, with a little planning and preparation, your journey can go more smoothly than you might have hoped. Have a look at our page Flying with Babies and Young Children for some reassuring advice.
