Disabled Options for Darwin Airport Car Rental
The drop off lane in front of the terminal makes it easy to drop off disabled passengers, and the free 15-minute parking is helpful also. There are also disabled parking bays for those with valid permits located on either side of the pedestrian walkways leading to the terminal, and in the short term and long term parking lots.
All terminal facilities are wheelchair-accessible, and should you need an airline wheelchair for mobility after yours has been checked, you should pre-arrange this with the airline staff. Accessible toilets can be found all over the terminal.
Passing through security can raise difficulties for those with disabilities, so it is essential to communicate any special requirements to the screening staff. Passengers should notify them of any medical implants or prostheses which may set off the metal detector, and of any medications needed onboard which may cause safety concern during the screening. Those unable to walk unaided through the metal detector can opt for a hand-search, and there is a private room available for this if desired.
