Do you have a temporary mobility issue?

You can request assistance when you book online or afterwards in My Bookings.

Travel companion and medical clearance

For your safety, please check to see if you need to travel with a companion and if you need medical clearance. Do I need medical clearance to travel? Do I have to travel with a companion?


Your seat reservation

You may select your seats in My Bookings after you purchase your ticket. If you are unable to make a selection online, you can be assigned side-by-side seating once you arrive at the airport. At the very latest, we will assign side-by-side seating free of charge to the person with a disability and their companion, on the day of the Air France flight to/from Canada.

Useful information

  • Consider booking a direct flight in order to ensure a smooth trip and minimize the handling of your wheelchair.
  • If your trip includes a connecting flight, we recommend you allow a minimum of 1.5 hours transit time between your flights.
  • Is your flight operated by one of our partner airlines? The airline's rules apply. 
    •  If you booked your flight with Air France and requested special assistance, we will transfer your request to the airline operating your flight to ensure it is properly processed. Please contact the airline with which you are playing to ensure your request has been received.
