If you have mobility problems, then you might be reluctant to take a holiday abroad, or anywhere that involves an airplane flight.
After all, it could be difficult for you to make your way through the airport, and you might have trouble climbing the steps to board. Well, there really is no need to worry, as you can contact your airline in advance and request assistance when you arrive. You can arrange to have access to a wheelchair as well as help with getting on the plane. This support can be invaluable to passengers with limited mobility as it allows them to travel to places that they would otherwise be unable to visit.
Although there are rarely any problems if this assistance is requested in advance, unfortunately there have been some reported cases of airlines failing in their duty of care towards their passengers. For example, if there is an unexpected emergency, then there might not be enough staff available to offer support or there may be no wheelchairs available during a particularly busy time. If this happens, then the passenger might be forced to negotiate the flight with no help at all.

If this happens, then the passenger could be at risk of sustaining an injury through no fault of his or her own. They could slip on the tiled floor of the airport, or trip and fall on the steps that lead to the plane. Well, under these circumstances, the passenger could be entitled to compensation for their injuries.
