Do you have a hidden disability but wish to travel independently through the Airport?

Belfast International Airport understands that travelling through an airport can be stressful and for those passengers with hidden disabilities the airport journey can prove to be particularly challenging.

If you or someone you are travelling with have a Hidden Disability and feel you may need additional support as you travel independently through the Airport we will be happy to provide you with a lanyard which will discreetly identify you to Airport staff as requiring additional support.

With the lanyard, you can approach security using the left hand Priority Security lane. Security staff at the boarding pass scanners will then direct you into a Special Assistance Lane from that point. 

Please note that the lanyard does not permit fast track through Security or Passport Control but is designed to assist you through the process as smoothly as possible.

Familiarisation visits, prior to travel, will be considered on request. For further information please email
