Wheelchair users 
If the passenger is immobile and requires the aisle chair (onboard wheelchair) to get to their seat agents will need to let us know so that we can put the correct SSR code on the booking so that the airport and air crew are prepared. Guests will need to have their wheelchair tagged for the storage in the hold as we do not have appropriate storage in the cabin.
