Edinburg Airport and Glasgow Airport have been named as the two best airports in the UK in terms of accessibility. This is according to a new report by the flight comparison site, Netflights, which carried out a review on 30 of the busiest airports in the UK using data from airport users.
Coming in joint first place, Edinburg and Glasgow were recognised for the significant investments they have both made in improving the airport experience for passengers with a range of disabilities, in terms of service and facilities. The Netflights assessment criteria factored in elements like hidden disability lanyard schemes, initiatives to support passengers who are hard-of-hearing and blind and investments in Changing Places facilities.
The findings of the review paint a largely positive picture of airport accessibility in the UK, with, for example, 22 out of the 30 airports achieving a rating of 60 per cent and above.
In general, larger airports performed better than smaller airports when it came to accessibility.
