Transportation of Disabled People
How shall a disabled person get on/off board?
Ill (disabled) passengers and people accompanying them must get on board BEFORE other passengers. On arrival disabled passengers and people accompanying them get off the plane after all other passengers. A passenger, having checked-in his wheelchairs, can use a wheelchair provided by the airport or can wait for his own.

Such passengers are:
• blind and deaf passengers;
• elderly passengers;
• children with visible infectious diseases (measles, chickenpox and etc.).
Disabled, requiring special help on board must have a special medical report. Such passengers are:

• passengers having transmitting diseases (except usual childhood diseases);
• passenger who need special medical care, additional oxygen bag or medical equipment onboard;
