Gatwick Accessibility Day

Gatwick Airport hosts two Accessibility Days every year, which are events designed to make airports feel like a “less scary place” for those with disabilities. Families who have at least one disabled member are invited to come and experience a simulated journey through the airport and get to know some of the friendly faces at the Gatwick. The most recent event took place on Sunday 8 April, 2018.

Airlines partners provided a mock check-in process, after which visitors were able to take rides on a Wilson James buggy, interact with the Gatwick security staff and meet Border Force representatives—including their trusty canine colleagues! Children were able to view their toys on x-ray screen, and engage with emergency service providers in an educational way.

These Accessibility Days allow families to experience the sights and sounds of an airport in a friendly and fun environment.

Ruth Rabet and the Wilson James were on hand to support the event and were commended for the friendly and engaging manner they always bring to making this day a success.

‘It was incredibly humbling, parents and children had a fantastic experience of what the airport journey could entail – a huge success.’ Quote by Ruth Rabet, Head of Assisted Service, London Gatwick Airport.
