Disabled facilities and special assistance at Blackpool Airport

Blackpool Airport is committed to providing services for passengers with reduced mobility. It is advisable to inform your airline or travel agent that you will require assistance well in advance of travelling. This will reduce the amount of time you have to wait for assistance.

Disabled facilities include:

  • Meet and assist to and from the aircraft
  • Ambulift
  • Airport wheelchairs
  • Wheelchair access
  • Single level building
  • Fully equipped disabled toilet facilities
  • Wheelchair accessible phones
  • Induction loops
  • Blue Badge designated car parking spaces

Special assistance

Fully trained staff are available to provide assistance for disabled or reduced mobility passengers. Passengers requiring special assistance should contact the airport's main switchboard on 01253 343434 and then ask for extension 8251 or choose option 9.

Car Parking for Disabled Passengers

Blue Badge permit holders should use the designated parking spaces in the Pay to Park car park located directly opposite the airport terminal. Should all of the Blue Badge bays be in use, Blue Badge permit holders are welcome to park anywhere they choose within the Pay to Park car park.

In either case please ensure that your Blue Badge permit (or a clear photocopy of it) is clearly displayed and that your vehicle's registration details and return date are promptly registered with the Tourist Information Centre. If you require assistance please press the call button and a staff member will help you. When you return please have your ticket validated by a staff member rather than using the ticket machine.
