Safety Instructions and Limitations
At the Airport
At all EU airports, assistance to passengers with reduced mobility and orientation is provided by local specialised companies irrespective of the carrier.
Outside the EU, assistance is provided by Czech Airlines’ ground handling agent in line with the technical equipment and conditions of the respective airport.
An airport wheelchair is made available to passengers with reduced mobility upon their arrival at the airport, during check-in and on the way to/from the aircraft.
Transport of Mobility Aids
Passengers with reduced mobility and orientation may carry free of charge up to 2 pieces of mobility aids, including a wheelchair, as checked baggage in excess of their free baggage allowance based on the tariff package of their ticket.
Certified assistance dogs accompanying visually impaired passengers and passengers with reduced mobility dependent on their help are transported free of charge in the passenger cabin. Assistance dogs are transported free of charge in the passenger cabin provided they wear a harness, are on a leash and have a training certificate and all travel documents required.
Aboard an Aircraft
Assistance dogs are transported on the floor next to the passenger dependent on their assistance in front of a seat which remains unoccupied.
For safety reasons, passengers with reduced mobility and orientation may not be seated in exit rows.
If you need oxygen during the flight for health reasons, you can order an oxygen cylinder already when purchasing your ticket or later through our Contact Centre or by your ticket agent. The bottle capacity is 2 to 2.5 hours of flight at a consumption of 4 liters per minute. The oxygen must be ordered not later than 48 hours prior to your departure. You will pay a fee of 11 000 CZK / 450 EUR (or equivalent in local currency) for 1 piece of oxygen cylinder. The fee is non-refundable. For safety reasons, you cannot bring your own oxygen cylinder on board.
