We use 'Welcome by Neatebox' to ensure that
our Special Assistance team meets your needs upon arrival

Welcome is a free app which allows you to request visits to Edinburgh Airport, indicating the areas you need our special assistance team to have awareness of and the assistance you require. We will be notified when you are on your way and receive an overview of your disability and top tips to aide the interaction with you. This is an additional service on top of the special assistance you book with your airline to help us understand your needs and provide you a more enjoyable journey through Edinburgh Airport. 

Don't forget to book the special assistance with your airline at least 48 hours before your flight.
