The European Union has provided forms of assistance to people with disabilities or restricted mobility (referred to as ``PMR'' Passeggeri a mobilità ridotta ).
The European legislation has granted forms of protection to those passengers with difficulties in using air transport due to any physical disability. The assistance is applied to every scheduled, charter and low cost flight leaving from or going through a UE airport, when the airline is a EU company.
To obtain assistance you have to apply to the air company or to the tour operator which issued the ticket at least 48 hours before flight departure.
