Because each airline has a different wheelchair accessibility process, I compiled wheelchair accessible information specific to each airline (e.g., purchasing tickets, assigning accessible seats, and reserving accessible services to get on/off the plane). I also compiled the relevant contact information and drafted an overview of the process I use when booking on each airline. I am only including airlines on which I have personally flown, and will update periodically to reflect changes experienced.
Please note that my process may not be the same as yours given differences in impairment levels, processes change, and/or the airlines may ask for different approaches. That said, my preferred ranking of airlines is as follows:
- Southwest Airlines
- American Airlines
- Sun Country
- Alaska Airlines
- Hawaiian Airlines
These are overviews of wheelchair accessible information specific to each airline, and are intended to help guide your buying process. Please confirm with the airline in case of any discrepancy or questions.
