Almeria Airport starts new handicapped assistance scheme

AENA, the state owned operating company of Almeria Airport, has implemented a new handicapped assistance scheme at the airport for its passengers.

As opposed to the old system, where if you were lucky a stewardess would give you a hand down the stairs to the tarmac.

As long as you book 48 hours before travel, you can now receive 100% assistance from the drop off point to your plane seat, or vice versa. They’ll even put your suitcase on the bus / car / taxi for you.

Despite the glowing promises, the portavoz of the Almeria Handicapped Society “Verdiblanca”, a Mr. Antonio Sanchez de Amo, seemed pessimistic to La Voz – saying that he’ll “believe it when he sees it”.
