Wheelchairs & Strollers

Wheelchairs

Customers with disabilities are not required to provide us with any advance notice of the need for assistance; however, doing so helps us better prepare for the number of customers who will need our help. There is no charge for mobility devices to be carried as checked baggage.

We recommend that customers with disabilities arrive at the airport no later than the recommended check-in time so that they can be assisted though security screening etc by our staff. Passengers travel for medical reasons may also need extra time for their medical travel documents to be examined and clearance to travel given.

Unfortunately, due to the size of the baggage hold of our aircraft, we may be unable to carry some powered wheelchairs, and we ask that this be planned for accordingly.

We give passengers the opportunity to proactively notify us of any specific disability-related needs during by emailing us at reservations@tropicair.com

Customers may also advise us of any disability-related travel needs at the time of booking by telephone or, if a reservation has already been made, by calling (+501) 226-2012 prior to travel.

Strollers / Car Seats

Tropic Air permits car seats and strollers for infants and children to be carried for FREE.
