We understand

Have you had to experience being lifted under the arms and legs or watched someone being lifted this way. Sadly, across the globe this is still largely the main method of transferring wheelchair users to and from the aircraft.

There are improvements being made around the world with more airports now purchasing hoists and slings to assist with safer transfers and improved moving and handling.

The challenge is not all airports have suitable equipment, meaning you could be safely transferred with equipment at one airport and then arrive at an airport where they have nothing and resort to top and tail lifts under the arms and legs.
