Air Travel for People Using Walkers or Scooters

Most airlines provide accommodations to persons with disabilities who have difficulty walking through the airport-usually in the form of a wheelchair and wheelchair attendant. Please contact your airline for more information about wheelchair assistance as TSA does not provide this service.

The screening process for a passenger who uses a wheelchair or scooter is determined by a passenger’s ability to stand and walk. A passenger can be screened without standing, walking or being required to transfer out of a wheelchair or scooter. However, a passenger should inform a security officer of his or her ability before the screening begins.
