Improving access

Update 13/07/16

Glasgow Prestwick Airport are in contact with South Ayrshire Council Sensory Impairment Team and have been invited to attend an all Ayrshire Councils meeting run by the Sensory Impairment Team being held this July.

Through attending this meeting we are looking to make active engagement with local disability groups and we are planning to host them for a familiarisation event at the Airport later this year.  Our goal is to provide everyone with the opportunity to travel by air even when they think that due to a disability that flying is not something for them.

Update 10/10/16

After meeting with all Ayrshire Councils we are pleased to announce Glasgow Prestwick Airport will be hosting a familiarisation event with local disability groups on Tuesday 18 October 2016.  We are looking forward to making this event a success.
