The first ever Manchester Airport Accessibility Expo is taking place this Wednesday, 22nd November.
The Manchester Airport Accessibility Expo will give customers with disabilities the chance to learn about the services the airport currently offers.
Staff from various organisations across the airport that offer assistance to passengers will be on hand to offer advice on pre-travel, arriving at the airport, PRM assistance and customer experience.
Fiona Wright, Customer Services and Security Director, at Manchester Airport, said:
“This will be the first time we’ve held such an event and it’s a great opportunity for customers with disabilities to come and find out about the services we as an airport currently offer and also provide feedback to us on what we currently do.
“Ensuring those who need assistance enjoy a positive experience at our airport is both a priority of ours and the organisations contracted to provide such services on our behalf.”
It will be held on 22 November between 10am and 4pm at the Runway Visitor Park. Entry and parking is free of charge. To find out more information or to register to attend, please visit the website
