· At the airport; the alternative option to park and ride is what is know as meet and greet parking. This method is much more friendly as it enables you and your family to drive directly to the airport and have your vehicle collected from the terminal you are departing from.
· Each aircraft has what are known as Med seats (medical seats) which the aircraft staff can allocate at their discretion upon departure. Use these seats with autistic children.
