Traveling By Air

Many people travel by air with their mobility scooters and generally you can do it worry free and very easily. In many cases it is possible to drive your mobility scooter through security and right up to the departure gate and check it on at the gate. In that case you can often watch any disassembly to make sure it is done properly. Also in most cases, your scooter will be returned to you at the gate when you depart the airplane.

Airlines should not charge you for the extra "checked luggage", that is, taking your mobility scooter should be free.

However, and this is a big however, it is possible that some airlines will insist that you leave your mobility scooter at the check-in counter and it is possible that your scooter might be handled like luggage.

If you are traveling in a small plane, your scooter may get disassembled. The airline personnel should reassemble your scooter back the way that you delivered it, but it may not be the case.

Just about every airline will have its policy concerning wheelchair posted on the website. Some mention scooters specifically and some do not. For example, Continental's website mentions "Powered Equipment / Carts and Wheelchairs". Carts presumably refers to mobility scooter. Delta's site specifically mentions scooters. If scooters are not specifically mentioned you should contact the airline to make sure that the wheelchair policy applies also to scooters, particularly if the airline is a non-US airline. Note that Lufthansa's website mentions that they limit the number of wheelchairs (and presumably scooters) allowed on a particular airplane.

Here is the policy for wheelchairs (and scooters if mentioned) for a few of the major airlines:

Continental

Delta

SouthWest

Lufthansa

Air France
