1. Plan ahead.
When booking, let the airlines know that you are traveling with a power wheelchair, and make them aware of pertinent details. For example, that you will need an aisle chair and assistance with lifting.
2. Ask the airlines to book you a seat as close to the front of the plane as possible.
3. Arrive early to the airport
. Cheking in and getting through security may take longer.
4. Protect your wheelchair.
Take everything off that isn’t bolted on. Including, the cushion, backrest, removable footrests, headrest and joystick. The joystick and electronics are most important to protect, because if they get damaged you can’t move. You should be able to store all removed parts in an overhead bin.
