Disabled Travel and Transport

Airports

In all major Italian airports there is a special service providing assistance to disabled people, including wheelchair service and assistance during boarding and landing. The assistance will be arranged through the airline once the airline is notified by the passenger. Assistance at Milan's Malpensa or Linate airports is provided by Sala Amica. Sala Amica's service does not include lifting baggage: a porter should be called for this service.
