Registration before the journey
Bremen Airport offers several services to passengers with reduced mobility to facilitate their journey. Flight guests with reduced mobility or disabilities who require supervision at the airport are asked to register themselves in advance.
- at least 48 hours before take-off
- with the airline company
- with the tour operator
Timely registration facilitates the timely forwarding of information to the supervision service.
Registering your wheelchair
If you take your own wheelchair you need to register it with the airline company stating its measurements (height, width and weight). Detailed information regarding the transport of your wheelchair may be obtained from the airline company or tour operator.
In case you are travelling with a battery-operated wheelchair, please inform yourself about the type of battery it uses and provide this information when you book the flight.
You are travelling with a companion dog
If your dog is accompanying you on your journey, please ask your airline company about current regulations for taking them with you well in advance. Please keep your dog on a lead while you are in the terminal.
