Walking Canes, Crutches and Walking Frames
Air Vanuatu operates a narrowed bodied aircraft your mobility aid will need to meet the specified size dimensions when adjusted or broken down for our aircraft. Walking canes and crutches may be carried in the aircraft cabin. You may use your cane or crutches to the departure gate and carry it on board the aircraft where it will be stowed in an overhead locker or alternative storage space.
If your walking frame is collapsible and cabin crew can stow it safely, your walking frame can be stowed in the aircraft cabin. For safety reasons, non-collapsible walking frames are not permitted in the aircraft cabin. You can surrender your walking frame at check-in. You will then be transferred to the departure gate in a wheelchair. Alternatively, you can use your frame to the departure gate where it can be surrendered for stowage in the aircraft hold.
To allow Air Vanuatu and its ground handling agent to provide the appropriate levels of assistance, passengers with mobility limitations must allow sufficient time for check-in and boarding.
