    This information is taken from a leaflet “Sin Barreras” available in Spanish and English at all Spanish airports. It is an overview of what is available and how to obtain assistance. The leaflet can be found at Tenerife Sur Reina Sofia airport by the “Sin Barreras” station near the departure gate number 1.

    Different disabilities by code:

    WCHC entirely immobile and not self sufficient. Must be accompanied to their seats and need complete personal assistance.

    WCHR help needed getting from the aircraft to the terminal. They can board and move around the aircraft on their own.
